BATON ROUGE — PitchBR is seeking innovators, entrepreneurs and business owners to pitch their business idea at the next PitchBR event on March 17 at Juban’s Creole Restaurant, 3739 Perkins Road in Baton Rouge.

PitchBR provides entrepreneurs an opportunity to enhance their company brand through presentation and public exposure. Participants deliver an elevator speech to a panelist of judges for the opportunity to win $1,000. Pitchers also receive audience and panelist feedback, coaching from prominent business consultants and connections to non-funding resources, such as professional services donors and providers. Interested individuals or companies can visit PitchBR.org and click “Apply to Pitch” to submit a proposal.

All applicants should be based in Louisiana, have less than $1 million in revenue, and less than $1 million invested in their company.

The deadline to submit is 5 p.m. on February 29.

“This is a great opportunity for companies to get exposure and network with investors, peers and the general public,” says Louisiana Technology Park Executive Director Stephen Loy. “It will help them expand and grow, as well as learn.”
