At the end of nine weeks of studying, testing, experimenting and collaborating, members of every CO.STARTERS at The Skillery cohort share their businesses with friends, supporters, mentors and members of the community at Pitch Night, a combination entrepreneur spotlight night and graduation party.
In March, our winter 2015 cohort celebrated at their sold-out Pitch Night, sharing businesses they’d further shaped and fine-tuned throughout the program. A small snapshot of some of the inspiring Nashville entrepreneurs and businesses spotlighted at that event:
All are up to great things since — Sifted has been catering lunches around town for the likes of Emma and Eventbrite (and just earned some SouthernAlpha love), and you can catch Craftcourse’s design work and Mary Mooney’s art at the upcoming summer installment of juried makers market Porter Flea (June 5-6), just for starters.
On Tuesday, June 2, our current cohort — the members of our first CO.STARTERS for Food Entrepreneurs class — will be sharing and celebrating their businesses at their Pitch Night at the Nashville Farmers Market, and we’d love to have you there to learn about their work and cheer them on toward success.
Graduates will share their short pitches, and we’ll sample some of their food and share lots of congratulations. Register (it’s free to attend) here.
