The National Black Business Pitch (NBBP) was a virtual competition designed to connect Black-owned businesses to corporations who look to expand and diversify their supply chain with new products and services.

Through the National Black Business Pitch, they look to do more than supply a seat at the table and open doors and build relationships that can lead to long-term and sustainable contracts. The goal was to create a Black business network that corporations can access and do business with.

If you are a Black-owned, founded, or controlled business throughout the United States, this is the event of a lifetime! Interested companies will complete an application, supply a copy of their capability statement and a three-minute video about their company. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges from the corporate supplier diversity community who will select thirty businesses to advance to the final competition and the opportunity to win cash prizes of up to $10,000. The final competition will consist of a 2-day live virtual event, where the business owner will Pitch his or her business to multiply corporations from across the United States. Most importantly, there is no cost to take part.
