PitchBR is the event where innovation meets excitement! Join us when three entrepreneurs will pitch their innovative food product or service in front of a live audience for a chance at the grand prize: a once-in-a-lifetime chance for career-defining success. THE AWARD Pitchers will be competing for a possible $250,000 cash prize from Innovation Catalyst, a Baton Rouge venture organization. Innovation Catalyst will advance this winner to a private due-diligence phase, where they may receive up to $250,000 in investment from the Catalyst Fund. Although the $250,000 is not a guaranteed award, investing in Baton Rouge start-ups is a primary function of Innovation Catalyst, who promises to to give the winner a good, hard look.
