Dear Potential Sponsor,
The Invest in Her competition is the only all-female pitch competition in Pittsburgh. We are entering our third year and third pitch event. Our annual pitch competition showcases the amazing talent that resides in our entrepreneurial community. Our vision is to help create a thriving region that can boast an impressive rate of newly formed and formidable women owned business enterprises.
In 2016 we held our second pitch event at Alloy 26 on the North Side. An audience of nearly 130 people heard six outstanding pitches from businesses that demonstrate the amazing talent and diversity we have in our own entrepreneurial community. Three of the six finalists walked away with small grants ranging from $5,000 to $2,000. First place went to Courtney Williamson of Abililife, home to the Calibrace+ (a back brace designed specifically for Parkinson’s patients). The talent of our 2016 finalists builds off the success we saw from our 2015 pitch winner Pack Up & Go, a travel business that has been featured in Forbes, Travel + Leisure, Vogue and several other media outlets and publications.
With your support Invest In Her hopes to provide several women entrepreneurs with access to capital, mentors and business development resources. Your donation will be used for prize money, event expenses and marketing materials. Currently, there is a list of 80 business owners and entrepreneurs engaged within the Invest in Her network and that list continues to grow.
All of our winners and finalists have gone on to grow their businesses and leave their mark on our local economy. As someone who is invested in supporting local entrepreneurs and continued economic growth for Pittsburgh, we invite you to join us as an event sponsor in this celebration of female entrepreneurship. The Invest In Her Pitch Competition will be held October 19th, 2017. We anticipate having over 100 attendees at the event and a variety of media coverage.
All donations are tax deductible. Please read the full sponsorship packet here for event details and a range sponsor opportunities.
