Pitch Nashville

Pitch Nashville 2019 is tackling one of the most important topics of our day, healthcare. As Nashville booms, this industry has taken a stronghold in the city and attracted many young entrepreneurs as a result. On October 10th, you have the opportunity to hear from some of these bright young minds as they pitch their solutions to pressing issues to a panel of judges for a chance at a $2500 cash prize to further their mission!

Be sure to grab one of the VIP tickets (or even a whole table!) that are available. These tickets include a catered meal, a seat at the VIP tables, and four drink tickets.

General Admission is also available and includes two drink tickets and GA seating.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit our Charity of the Year, Special Olympics, so be sure to support this event!
