Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.


LITE Pitch Night: May 4th


What do fertilizer, a pickup basketball game app, & an African American fashion magazine have in common?

They are just a few ideas to better the Mid-South community that will be pitched during LITE Pitch Night!

After months of hard-work and planning, 27 high school students will pitch their entrepreneurial ideas to theΒ community for a chance to win $1000 in additional funds to bring their project to life.

  • When: Thursday May 4, 2017 (6-8PM)
  • Where: Memphis Botanic Gardens
  • Register here!

What can you do to help? Glad you asked!

Audience members choose the two winners, so just show up and listen carefully. From 6-6:30 pm, students will give brief elevator pitches at different booths, and shortly after, seven finalists will take to the stage to share their projects with everyone.

LITE MemphisΒ (Let’s Innovate through Education) was named one of the 20 ideas that could change the world by Forbes, and has helped over 1,000 students develop entrepreneurial skills in Memphis.
