Youth 'pitch night' an opportunity for high school entrepreneurs to present their best ideas

Bohnd Bracelets will be hosting a Pitch Night for Nashville High School entrepreneurs at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center on Sunday, February 25th from 5 - 7 p.m.

At this open to the public event, attendees pay $10 entry fee, receive a meal, and hear from students pitching their ideas. It might be a service project, it might be an app, or even a coffee social enterprise that raises money for students to go to college. The attendees will then vote for their favorite, and the entrepreneur with the winning idea will receive all of the money collected at the door + a micro-grant provided by 10% of Bohnd company profits.

Tickets can be purchased here

Last year's pitch event saw 7 students pitch to an audience of more than 100 attendees. Greg August of Coffe4College, a social enterprise that strives to help students decrease their college fees by selling bags of coffee, took home $500. 

This Pitch Night will be held in conjunction with two local sponsors: Oasis Venture, an organization that guides youth through a 16-week curriculum in entrepreneurship, and Rodizio Grill, who will provide the event's catering.

Check out a recap of the previous Pitch Night.

I don’t know what it is with men’s jeans that make it so difficult to find the right pair. It takes time to go through all these denim brands and try styles like straight-legged, boot-cut, and then the disco favorite, flared jeans. Thanks to popular metal bands back in the day, acid-washed and stone-washed jeans were a thing–pair those with a biker jacket and some big hair, and you were set.

I think we’ve all been there back in the day when we smoked our first joint, and then some, (sorry mom)–hacking, coughing, and choking on the herbaceous weed.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
