Pitch Black: The Future is Female

March 11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm CDT

Free

The women’s movement busted open the doors of 2018 like a flat screen TV sale on Black Friday. Women aren’t taking any prisoners this year – it’s time to stand up, stand out and get ready for success.

If you’re an African American woman who made launching a startup or a non-profit part of your New Year’s resolutions, we want to hear your pitch!

Pitch Black: The Future is Female, will select 10 African American entrepreneurs with the x chromosome to pitch their business plan to a panel of judges ready to invest a Grand Prize of $10,000 in venture capital and a 2nd Place Prize of $2,500! You’ll have four minutes in this “Shark Tank” style pitch competition to wow the judges.

Applications are due on February 9, 2018 by 11:59 p.m., Central Time. 

Pitch Black: The Future is Female, is a SXSW Diversity partner event, with backing from Silicon Valley-based VC firm Backstage Capital. Backstage Capital is an African American female-led venture capital fund that invests in new companies led by women, people of color and LGBTQ founders.

A SXSW Badge or day pass is required to attend.
