A Little More About the Event:
Pitch Nashville is a Ted Talk meets Shark Tank where we give Nashvillians a platform to pitch their ideas to solve some issue our community faces. The winning team takes home a $2,500 check provided by The Cauble Group and will be connected with influencers in our community to implement their solution.
This year's topic: education.
According to the Nashville Chamber in their 2017 Education Report, high school graduation rates dropped for the third year in a row to 80.3%. Tennessee's schools overall have been rated top 10 worst education systems in the country.
The Junior Chamber is anticipating a turnout of 100 to 150 people and the event will be judged by Michael Burcham (CEO of Narus Health), David Plazas (The Tennessean), and several other prominent education figures.
