Take Off Now Business Pitch Competition

Please join us February 24th to meet our finalists & to learn how to craft a “Perfect Pitch”

On February 24, Accompany Capital will be awarding ten cash prizes totaling $31,000 to New York women-owned businesses that innovated, seized new opportunities in 2020, and are now emerging stronger.

Two businesses – one startup and one existing business – will be taking home $10,000 each,  two runners-up will receive $2,500, and six finalists will be awarded $1,000 each.  Winners will be chosen based on the quality of their business plans and short video pitches and attendees will be invited to vote for their favorites for the $1000 People’s Choice Award.*

Host Precious Williams – a 13-time national business elevator pitch champion and the founder of Perfect Pitches – will talk about what makes a great pitch, with ideas you can use to perfect your own pitch. You’ll also get to hear from the two Grand Prize Winners as she interviews them about how they pivoted and what they learned for going forward.

The event is free but please register here to attend.


This pitch competition is presented in partnership with New York Women in Business, thanks to a generous donation from the Wells Fargo Foundation.

*We are only considering entries submitted before the January 17th deadline.
