The SEA Change Pitch Event will go virtual in 2021, with seven social enterprises pitching for over $100,000 in funding and in-kind services.
The event will stream on Facebook Live and YouTube from 12 – 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15. Streaming is free, but views are encouraged to make a donation that will support the program and pitching social enterprises.
The annual SEA Change Signature Cohort takes social enterprises through four months of intense business building with professional guidance and coaching from expert mentors on how best to proceed with their operations. Also virtual in its programming, the accelerator worked with social enterprises across the country for its 2021 cohort.
From 14 social impact businesses in the cohort, seven were selected to pitch including:
- Better Future Families (Washington, D.C)
- Bust A Move (Cleveland, OH)
- CITA Social Enterprises, LLC (Columbus, OH)
- Green Scope Consulting (Columbus, OH)
- Tiny Tunemakers (Columbus, OH)
- Together We Compost (Columbus, OH)
- Virtual Village Learning Center (Baltimore, MD)

In addition to making a donation, guests can put their dollars towards their crowd favorite. At $5 a vote, the crowd favorite winner will receive all proceeds from the sale of the crowd favorite tickets. Voting closes the morning of the event.
