Join the NGLCC for Sip & Pitch Fridays!

By September 14, 2022Events

The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce invites you to Sip & Pitch Fridays! These virtual events take place on the last Friday of each month from 3 PM EST to 6 PM EST and allows participants the chance to informally present their business to a panel of experts and fellow business owners for positive, constructive feedback and new ideas. If you have a 5-minute (or less) presentation with all the bells and whistles: great! If not: that’s great, too! Simply bring your “elevator pitch” and any messaging you’d like to work on with our experts. This is an open forum!

For the final hour ALL members of the LGBT and allied business community in the NGLCC network are welcome to pour a drink of your choice – with everything from coffee to cocktails welcome – and casually network with your fellow community members over digital video. Our community is sustained by our resilience and commitment to helping one another through the good times and the challenging ones.

Why Pitch?

Although these are mock pitches, these programs are a tremendous opportunity for NGLCC community businesses to enjoy:

  • No-cost constructive feedback to help you improve your pitch, whether a casual elevator pitch, coordinated matchmaking opportunity, or formal pitch for upcoming RFPs
  • Judgment-free, safe space for you to practice your pitch. Everyone in the room wants to help you succeed and share best practices
  • See and be seen by representatives from NGLCC Corporate Partners and fellow Certified LGBTBE® companies seeking your goods & services. Participation is a great way to build relationships with key buyers and strategic partners while presenting to a national audience eager to see your innovations
  • Learn what other NGLCC Certified LGBTBE® suppliers do. You will likely be amazed to hear what some of your fellow NGLCC members are up to which could lead to ways for you to work together
