What We Do

Black Founders Pitch is an opportunity for Black male business owners to raise funding and capital.

Black Founders Pitch provides business advisory services that assist founders in necessary business growth strategies such as pitching, fundraising, and marketing. If you are navigating the startup phase of your business, or are an early-stage company seeking market exposure, investment, and strategic partnerships, then this opportunity is for you.

More than just a chance to pitch in our competition, your candidacy in Black Founders Pitch is an opportunity to certify your pitch skills and learn how to confidently raise funds beyond our event.



Founders have three minutes to pitch about their business storyline, product/service, innovation/ingenuity, business model, and target market. Each pitch will also feature a three-minute Q&A with our featured Panel of Champions - our group of respected business experts who will provide founders with feedback and takeaways.

Here's where our competition is unique and differs from other events. Our panel does not score the pitches nor do they select the winner. The audience selects the winner through our unique "vote with your dollars" method. Think of it as 'Shark Tank', with an audience, where everyone is a shark. Using our platform, the audience votes with their dollars to determine the winner. The founder with the most votes wins (not the most money raised).
