NGLCC Live: Sip & Pitch Fridays
September 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Pour a drink; pitch a business; make an invaluable connection. The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) invites you to take advantage of what they do best: bring business leaders together and create new relationships. Even in this time of social distancing, virtual meetings allow us to be closer than ever.
THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO ALL, AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PITCH TO PARTICIPATE! Each Sip & Pitch Friday requires a new registration TO ATTEND. To RSVP, click here.
At Sip & Pitch Fridays you have the chance to informally present your business to a panel of experts and your fellow business owners for positive, constructive feedback and new ideas. If you have a 5 minute (or less) presentation with all the bells and whistles: great! If not: that’s great, too! Simply bring your “elevator pitch” and any messaging you’d like to work on with our experts. This is an open forum! Although these are mock pitches, these programs are a tremendous opportunity for NGLCC community businesses to enjoy:
- No-cost constructive feedback to help you improve your pitch, whether a casual elevator pitch, coordinated matchmaking opportunity, or formal pitch for upcoming RFPs
- Judgment-free, safe-space for you to practice your pitch. Everyone in the room wants to help you succeed and share best practices
- See and be seen by representatives from NGLCC Corporate Partners and fellow Certified LGBTBE® companies seeking your goods & services. Participation is a great way to build relationships with key buyers and strategic partners while presenting to a national audience eager to see your innovations
- Learn what other NGLCC Certified LGBTBE® suppliers do. You will likely be amazed to hear what some of your fellow NGLCC members are up to which could lead to ways for you to work together
