The natural food industry isn’t slowing down and startups continue to take flight. To showcase emerging brands, the NOSH Live Pitch Slam presented by 301 Inc. returns for its sixth edition. The startup competition offers a platform for newcomers to demonstrate their potential in front of natural food industry decision makers and influencers. The competition is held during NOSH Live Summer 2019 in New York City on June 10th and 11th.
The Pitch Slam is an integral piece of the immersive NOSH Live experience. Contenders take the stage to pitch their food business to a panel of respected industry veterans, as well as industry partners and peers found in the crowd and watching from home. Hundreds of brands, investors, retailers, distributors, suppliers and service providers will be in attendance in search of “What’s Next?” for natural food and opportunities for partnership.
Finalists present a four minute pitch and answer direct questions from the judges. Respected investors, retail buyers, brand founders and executives from BOOMCHICKAPOP, VMG Partners, The Goods Mart, Sonoma Brands and Starbucks have judged the Pitch Slam, offering invaluable feedback to help brands accelerate growth.
At the conference, finalists reach celebrity status and recognition. All competitors benefit from industry exposure before, during and after the event, opening the door for partnerships that could bring them to the next level.
In addition to industry notoriety, the Pitch Slam 6 champion will win a NOSH advertising package valued at $10,000 and an exclusive livestream interview at the event. Last winter, Creation Nation was named the champion, receiving praise from the judges for its innovation in protein bar and ball mixes. Other past winners include Watermelon Road, Tribali, and Bronx Hot Sauce. For a look inside the competition, watch the Winter 2018 Pitch Slam Presentations, including Creation Nation’s winning pitch.
