You’re Invited: Teacherpreneur Pitch Night

Teacherpreneur’s fifth annual Pitch Night will kick off Startup Week Chattanooga on Sunday, October 21 from 4-6pm!  Join us to hear ideas from Hamilton County’s most innovative educators.

Teacherpreneurs will pitch their big idea for education in front of a panel of judges and our community (that’s you!) on Sunday, October 21 from 4-6pm.  Admission is free, but space is limited.  Audience members will also be able to vote online, awarding a prize to the crowd favorite sponsored by Locals Only Chattanooga.

The Teacherpreneur Incubator offers teachers the support, time and space to incubate big ideas and grow them into sustainable, scalable projects, programs and businesses. A partnership between PEF and HCDE, with the generous support of the Benwood Foundation,  Teacherpreneur brings together educators, entrepreneurs, experts, and community members to develop and grow ideas with impact far beyond four classroom walls.
