As a part of the Youth Entrepreneur Series (YES), the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. (NCBW) Phoenix Metropolitan Chapter has partnered with Afro Unicorn to offer what we are calling, the YES Biz Grant. The YES Biz Grant will be awarded to Black, female aspiring or existing entrepreneurs between the ages of 5-17 who reside in the state of Arizona. The YES Biz Grant was developed to drive positive systemic change that results in gender equity in business and economic empowerment, to create a foundation for building generational wealth for Black girls, and to promote and support youth entrepreneurship.
Pitch Perfect is a live pitch contest before the community and a panel of judges to bring awareness of our great, aspiring and existing entrepreneurs within the state of Arizona, and to give entrepreneurs an opportunity to pitch their business ideas for a chance to win $1000 from our sponsor, Afro Unicorn!
The purpose of Pitch Perfect is to propel business growth and awareness of youth entrepreneurs within our community and to demonstrate our commitment to advocate for and invest in young, Black female entrepreneurs.
Come watch this LIVE pitch contest and cast your vote for your favorite entrepreneur!
