We will host one combined Pitch Night on March 2, 2017.


Traverse City enjoyed Pitch Night 2016 so much — standing room only! — that we are doing it again! This time, we are holding two Pitch Nights, so that youth from the region may have their own spotlight. If you have an “idea worth spreading,” please register for Youth Pitch Night (up through age 18) or Open Pitch Night. Our speaking roster for will include six 6-minute speaking slots instead of two 18-minute slots. We will select three speakers from Youth Pitch Night on February 23, and three speakers from Open Pitch Night on March 2. If you’d like to make a Pitch, review the 2017 theme, and apply to tell us about YOUR ‘idea worth spreading.’ We look forward to meeting movers and shakers in our community. We welcome Pitches from students, retirees, and from any walk of life in between.
