Pitch Slam provides a platform for emerging entrepreneurial natural food brands to present their innovative products and business plans to a panel of respected judges from the natural food business. Investors, retailers, distributors, brands and other industry professionals will be in the NOSH Live crowd and viewing the presentations online.
The Project NOSH Pitch Slam is the distinguished business pitch competition for emerging better-for-you packaged food brands. Aside from the $5000 grand prize, all finalists will benefit from the informed, candid feedback from the judges, who will be drawn from industry veterans, investors, and retail and distribution gatekeepers. Participants will also take away exposure from the hundreds of conference attendees and livestream viewers.
Over 60 natural packaged food brands applied to compete in the second Pitch Slam this past June, and Bronx Hot Sauce came out on top. To join the winner’s circle, each brand must present a four minute “pitch,” followed by direct Q&A with the judges, who will select a winner to be announced at the end of the conference. For a better understanding of the competition, please take a look at the Summer 2017 Pitch Slam Presentations, which includes Bronx Hot Sauce’s winning pitch.
Ready for the spotlight? Get noticed and gain industry exposure. Applications from natural and better-for-you brand owners will be accepted until Friday, November 10th. Only a handful of applicants will be selected to present in the finals on the NOSH Live Winter 2017 stage.There is no cost to apply aside from conference registration.
Detailed information on the format and selection process can be found in the application. More information on NOSH Live Winter 2017 and access to early registration pricing can be found on the event homepage.
