PITCH FOR GOOD


Pitch for Good is the final stretch for DO GOOD X Fellows who journeyed together through an 8-week accelerator program to clarify their ideas and bring them to life! Come and participate in a community of champions—investors, coaches, mentors, entrepreneurs, and business leaders—to hear these nine change-makers pitch their ideas to launch a venture for good.

The best part? You get to explore how you can invest in these social entrepreneurs to accelerate and launch their ventures for good. Do you have valuable networks or connections, skilled experience or expertise, or financial resources to invest? Or are you a creative, thoughtful conversation partner? Though financial resources are significant, DO GOOD X recognizes that money isn’t the only form of investment. Join in and pledge what you can do to support these Fellows.

DO GOOD X will award up to $10,000 to change-makers to validate their ideas.


Be courageous. Be generous. Do good.
