Pitch Black

A whiteboard pitching event for Portland area based African-American startups from all industries.  The purpose of this event is to give black founders a platform to showcase their entrepreneurial talent.  The first event was held on July 23, 2015 where six founders presented their ideas.  Cash prizes were given to the three winning founders. The SOUL District plans to sponsor additional Pitch Black events in 2016, and to increase the cash prizes available to $10K. #pitchblack
