First Pitch Friday began in 2020 by entrepreneur and venture investor, Christy Brown. The goal is to provide women a foundation and safe space to pitch their companies for venture funding. First Pitch Friday has enjoyed a partnership with Venture Atlanta, becoming an incredible funnel for leading female founders to be selected to present at Venture Atlanta. Venture Atlanta is held each
fall and is the largest venture capital conference on the east coast
connecting founders and funders.
At the end of the monthly pitch sessions, First Pitch Friday partners with Venture Atlanta to host a larger Pitch Showcase for the top founders to compete for one of the coveted slots of Venture Atlanta. Typically, Venture Atlanta selects as many as 4 founders from this showcase event.
This is an incredible opportunity for female founders and is completely free to participate.
At Vaxa Factor our goal is to get you ready to take the next step for your business. If pitching for venture isn’t right for you or you need coaching to get ready to pitch at First Pitch Friday, check out our Pitch360 program.
