As previously reported, FoundersForge and the Johnson City Doughboys have teamed-up to host a rebranded version of a Northeast Tennessee pitch competition with cash prizes going to the winners.
Formerly known as “Pitches & Pints,” the new brand – “Pitchers & Pitches” – is set to be launched May 6 at the TVA Credit Union Ballpark, 510 Bert Street in Johnson City. It will be an in-person event that will also offer a virtual option, according to David Nelson, Director of FoundersForge.
Gates open at 5 p.m. with food and drink, and the first pitcher will be on the mound at 6 p.m. for a two-minute elevator presentation. Other individuals will follow based on a selection process overseen by the FoundersForge Board of Directors and sponsors.
Those eligible to pitch include founders of concepts and established businesses. The former category includes those with an idea, a beta or perhaps just launched. If it is an established business, revenues should not be more than $2,000 a month.
