Welcome to the Pitch Room.
Brewing ideas is easy. Selling them is hard. That’s why we’ve created The Pitch Room. We’re dedicated to helping you in the pursuit of a better pitch for your innovative idea.
The Pitch Room is a competition that teaches up-and-coming food and beverage craftspeople how to perfect the art of the sales pitch. From the written application, to regional competition, to our National Pitch Room Finals, this is how eager entrepreneurs can practice, present, and get real-world, real-time feedback on their sales pitches from the country’s most respected retailers, wholesalers, restaurant owners and product innovators.
Based on quality of presentation, creativity, passion and product viability, one winner at each event will receive a $10,000 business grant and a year of extended coaching and mentoring from Sam Adams.
