nglccNY congratulates The Mitch Lippman Group, Inc. for winning the second round of our Biz Pitch competition sponsored by EY! We also congratulate GS New York and the Mexican Chocolate Company for being selected to participate. The EY panel of judges admittedly had a difficult choice to make upon the conclusion of all three pitches, and they join us in congratulating all three companies.
This was the second round of the three rounds of competition. The third round of this Biz Pitch competition will take place on September 25, 2018. (The application period will open in August.) The Mitch Lippman Group, Inc. will join the winner of our first Biz Pitch held in January, Hootolgy, and the September winner in the final competition on Monday, December 10, 2018, where they will each be awarded with and compete for one of the following three prizes:
- Best pitch: Full scholarship to the Supplier Diversity Professional Excellence, Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth for 2019 (approximate value: $5,000)
- Runner-up: nglccNY 2019 National Dinner Registration for one attendee (approximate value: $750)
- Second Runner-up: nglccNY 2019 Conference Registration for one attendee (approximate value: $600)
*SAVE THE DATE* -- The finale of our Biz Pitch competition on December 10, 2018, will be immediately followed by our December M3 where the Biz Pitch winners will be announced!
At each Biz Pitch, selected suppliers are allotted 10 minutes to present their pitch which is followed by helpful, constructive feedback from EY’s professionals. Feedback includes a critique of style, content, presentation skills and communication. Participation in Biz Pitch is also a tremendous opportunity to make memorable impressions upon key decision makers at an NGLCC Corporate Partner that is deeply committed to assisting in the success of all LGBTBEs.
Congratulations again to The Mitch Lippman Group, Inc., the winner of our second Biz Pitch!
