2023 REVERSE PITCH:
Energizing the next generation of entrepreneurship
Our Pure Pitch Rally founders and funders fully believe that a passion for entrepreneurship can start at any age – and should be nurtured and encouraged along one’s journey. Thanks to an exciting partnership with the CAPS Network, we’re proud to fuel the future through student participation in our Reverse Pitch event!
High school students from the greater Kansas City metro will gather to learn about real-world problems our Pure Pitch Rally alumni are tackling. Then, they’ll break out into small groups to define and present their own solutions to defined challenges. Does your school or program have what it takes to walk away with prizes and bragging rights? Learn more about how it works and then register to compete.
