The Great Pitch

The Great Pitch 2017

*Sponsored by

The Great Pitch impact venture competition is part of an international movement to inspire young entrepreneurs to use their superpowers (talents, skills, abilities) for good – to create real impact in real lives. The Great Pitch NAYC 2017 is a partnership with the United Pentecostal Church and General Youth Division. The competition application will launch in March 2017 and will culminate with semi-finalist and finalist pitches in front of judges (and people’s choice crowd vote) in Lucas Oil Stadium at the North American Youth Congress in July 2017. 

Over $100,000 in prizes, investment, and exposure are up for grabs for these ventures. As part of a cohort, finalist ventures will receive additional coaching, support, and exposure with entrepreneurs, coaches, and mentors – and will be featured in a series of web episodes. Venture pitch applications will be judged equally on their impact plan and business plan. There are two age categories – ages 12-17 and 18-35. The Great Pitch is powered by the same folks behind IMPACTJUNKIE and an amazing team of entrepreneurs, investors, and changemakers across the UPCI.

Just making money is so last millennium. Use your abilities to do more, and achieve the BHAG (our Big Hairy Audacious Goal) of hearing “Well done.”

NOTE: We will hold multiple live Google Hangout video sessions to overview The Great Pitch, answer questions, and get feedback.

The finals of The Great Pitch 2017 will be conducted prior to the evening service on Friday night.
