BMV Founders Pitch

The Inaugural Black Founders Pitch Competition is an opportunity for black male business owners, who are navigating the startup phase of their business endeavors, to receive funding. If you are an early-stage company seeking market exposure, investment, and strategic partnerships, apply for the pitch competition below. Please be prepared to convey a sustainable business model that demonstrates user traction, engagement and adoption metrics. The application deadline is March 1st. 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. The audience votes with their dollars, via our tech platform, to determine the winner. The person with the most votes wins (not the most money raised).
