PitchBR Finale

  • Pelican House 2572 Citiplace Court Baton Rouge, LA, 70808 United States (map)

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.
