New in 2020: Introducing WeInnoPITCH

New at the 2020 Summit & Salute, WBENC is excited to introduce WeInnoPITCH, an innovation-focused pitch competition for WBENC-Certified WBEs.

What is WeInnoPITCH?

WeInnoPITCH is a tournament-style pitch competition incorporating elements from three signature WBENC programs – WBENCPitch, WeInnovate! and Meet & Greet.

Using the tournament model of WBENCPitch, the competition will feature three rounds of pitching and eliminations, with a focus on innovative products and solutions from WBENC-Certified WBEs.

Eighty women business owners will be selected to compete in the tournament by Corporate Member representatives during the Meet & Greet business networking session on Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

How to Participate:

All WBENC-Certified WBEs registered with a full Summit & Salute admission are encouraged to participate. Here’s how:

  • Step 1: Register for the full Summit & Salute.
  • Step 2: Work on perfecting your pitch about your innovative business or solution.
  • Step 3: Pitch your innovative business or solution at Meet & Greet the morning of Tuesday, March 17.
  • Step 4: Watch for an email shortly following Meet & Greet announcing the 80 WBE competitors. If you are selected, you will then deliver your best pitch in the first round of the WeInnoPITCH tournament that afternoon.
