Our Impact to Date:
To date, we have hosted 44 PitchFeast events. Of those events, we have helped 76 under-resourced entrepreneurs move their business idea into a fully structured entity. This means these businesses are now able to enjoy the benefits of being a small business owner such as opening a bank account, applying for credit or a business loan, and protecting their own personal assets and wealth.
