An Event Series in Austin, Texas for Social Entrepreneurs Where We Pitch To You!
Entrepreneurs are used to pitching their business idea to investors, partners, and anyone they might share an elevator ride with. In this competition, the tables will turn. The [Re]Verse Pitch Competition is a social innovation program to help turn valuable raw materials that are currently leaving local businesses, non-profits, and institutions as waste into the foundation of new social enterprises.
Competitors work with mentors & advisors to develop repurposing business ideas and compete for Innovation Prizes to help start this new venture.
