Support Portland’s Black Founders

The Challenge:

1. We’re calling on BBPDX members and other allies in the business community to buy 100 tickets for the event . Grab them now here (and a shoutout to BBPDX member Instrument for hosting!)

2. This year’s goal is to surpass last year’s $7,000 raise and help Pitch Black raise $10,000 for the winners pool. Make a tax deductible donation here thanks to Built Oregon. (In the note field, please write BBPDX)

Once you’ve donated and/or registered please share your support with #PitchBlackPDX.

I am proud to be one of the founding members of BBPDX and the results-driven approach has been a breath of fresh air in the business community. Join me and others at this event to cheer on these founders and strengthen the bonds within our city.
