Black Enterprise is looking for five finalists to be selected to pitch LIVE at the African American Festival to win a grand prize of 2 registrations to our 2016 Entrepreneurs Summit.

Here’s the skinny: you pitch your best business concept in a 15 second video on Instagram with the hashtag #BEBestPitch and tag @BlackEnterprise. Entries will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Most viable business
  • Best pitch
  • Who would you invest in?

The deadline to submit your pitch via IG is June 8, 2015, so it’s time to get the ball rolling.

The African American festival celebrates more than 35 years of life, music, and culture and includes remarkable performances, empowerment sessions, fun for the entire family, not to mention great opportunities. This could be yours.

It’s just that simple. Follow @blackenterprise, post your 15 second video on Instagram, tag @blackenterprise and #BEBestPitch and have your submission in by June 8, 2015, 5pm EST.
