Next “Pitch for Good” features winners of 2020 editions

The Tennessee Titans and Nashville Entrepreneur Center (EC) have launched a partnership to identify and honor Nashville’s top entrepreneur or small business, and the winner will be designated as a Titans team sponsor in 2021.

The “Pitch for Good: Tennessee Tough” contest, presented by Pinnacle, will feature winners from each of the “Pitch for Good” competitions held in 2020. Those companies listed here include three from East Tennessee – Felicia Jackson of CPR Wrap who won the “Up and Running Stage” competition during the July “Black Founders Edition,”  Eric Mayer of EDP Biotech Corporation that captured first place in the “Idea in Motion” category for its recently launched COVID-19 antibody testing service during the “Pandemic Edition” in May, and Stacy Baugues of PowerUp Fitness who won the “Up and Running Stage” competition in the “Woman Founders Edition” in August.

According to the announcement from the NEC, a Selection Committee of industry experts will score each of the past winners before selecting four finalists to compete in the grand finale at 1 p.m. EST/12 noon CST on January 25. The winning entrepreneur will become a Titans sponsor for a year, receiving a package of media and hospitality rights to promote her/his business on the NFL stage.
