Nine13sports was invited to be one of three organizations that pitched to a public crowd at an event hosted by the Indiana University SPEA program. In addition to Nine13sports, Indy Reads and OBAT Helpers also made incredible pitches related to their organization and how they’re making an impact on the community.
The summary of the competition from their webpage:
Join us for an evening of good food and big ideas! Learn how microfinance is changing business in Indianapolis and abroad. $5 at the door gets you dinner and a vote for the most worthy organization. Three organizations will be pitching their cause for a chance to walk away with the grand prize. Keynote speaker, Jacob Schpok, Executive Director of the Office of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, will share his experience and how you can get involved. We’re looking forward to a big crowd!
Our executive director Tom Hanley put together an awesome pitch and after the votes were in, Nine13sports and his pitch was voted the grand prize winner! It was a close vote among all three organizations and we’re feeling incredibly fortunate to take home the win!
Big thanks to everyone who put this event together!
