Watch the Pitches

Watch the pitches this Thursday, March 31, at Texarkana's inaugural Pitch It Texarkana! Pitch It Texarkana was created by a group of Leadership Texarkana graduates and current students who joined forces. The competition focuses on igniting the entrepreneurial spirit and is specifically for Texarkana USA. The winner of the competition will win $5,000 and other prizes. 

Pitch It Texarkana is turning strategic thinking into strategic doing. This unique Texarkana program aims to inspire startup companies and promote entrepreneurial synergy within our community. 

Some of the most successful companies in America began with a single person and an idea. Thomas Edison had the right idea when he said, “I find out what the world needs. Then I go ahead and try to invent it.” Texarkana, USA is full of businesses that have started with unique ideas and a passion to grow our community. 

The event will be held at the Crossties Event Venue in Downtown Texarkana this Thursday, March 31. You can watch the aspiring entrepreneurs “pitch” their ideas to a panel of judges for a chance to win $5,000. The second-place winner will receive $2,500 and third place will be awarded $1,000. Contestants will have exactly three minutes to “wow” the judges. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased online or at the door!
