Pitch Night 2021
It has been another challenging year in the Business Incubator program at LFHS and this year's teams have stepped up demonstrating their ability to adapt to the current context with extraordinary resiliency and commitment to their businesses. We are proud to give them a platform to share their ideas with our community in the hopes of attracting investors and raising much needed start up capital through donations. Academic Pitches will take place virtually on May 13 and May 14. At that time our panel of judges will determine which teams will move on to Pitch Night.. The teams moving on will be announced May 15 and will participate in Pitch Night on May 20 starting at 7 PM.
At the event the teams moving forward will present their pitches to the community, we will have some speakers from LFHS and the Foundation as well as updates from some of this year's Accelerator Teams. We are thrilled that this year our presenting teams and judges will be together in-person in the RMA and our event will be a combination of videos, and livestream from the RMA. 2021 Best Pitch and Foundation Cup winners will be announced along with funding allocations from the LFHS Foundation Sponsorship pool. One exciting aspect of this year's event, which we piloted for the first time last year, is that the community at large will have the opportunity to support these teams through donations to the teams of their choice via this event website. We will also have links available so potential investors can pledge support for any of the teams in which they wish to make a more substantial investment with the expectation of a return on that investment.
We hope that everyone will TUNE IN on Thursday, May 20th to the Pitch Night 2021 Live Stream. It should be an exciting evening filled with the enthusiasm, hope and promise of LFHS student teams who are working so hard to get their businesses up and running.
