Spring Pitchfest and Potluck 2013
Tuesday, March 26th from 5-9pm
Reclaimed Space/Sustain Center – 433 South Bastrop Hwy
(South 183, next to Callahan’s General Store)

We are putting out a call to all sustainability minded entrepreneurs to create and submit a 2-3 minute video about themselves, their business and their growth plans. This is an OVI, an Online Video Introduction. Think of a Kickstarter video, but shorter, with the goal of these videos being to communicate the following things:
1. Who – Who are you/your business?
2. What – What is your product/market?
3. When – When do you plan to enter the market?
4. Where – Where will the impact of your business be felt?
5. Why – Why are you starting/growing this business (Mission/Core Values)?
6. How – How much capital do you need to execute your plan?
We welcome not only sustainable food folks, but entrepreneurs involved in the green building and renewable energy fields as well. The videos will be reviewed by a panel made up of Slow Money Austin and Texas Green Network leaders. We will announce the winners and show the top 5 videos at our Spring Pitchfest and Potluck 2013, on Tuesday March 26th at Reclaimed Space.
The 5 entrepreneurs selected will get the opportunity to be mentored by Slow Money leaders, work with a videographer and show a newly revised 10 minute pitch video at the Austin Earth Day event at Mueller Hanger on Saturday, April 20th. The Slow Money Austin organization will be hosting a VIP investors lounge at the Austin Earth Day event. These 5 winning videos will also be available for viewing on the Slow Money Austin website.
