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.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
