A Pitch Event for Life Science and Healthcare Non-profits in Massachusetts Designed to Stimulate Innovation, Visibility and Connections
Be sure to join us for this unique event as five finalists pitch their nonprofit organization to our expert panel of judges. Network with some of the leaders from nonprofit, for profit, philanthropy and VC world.
Why should you submit an application for a chance to pitch your mission? Pitching the mission is an essential skill for a nonprofit organization and being able to do it effectively makes a huge difference in fundraising and recruiting support.
Not sure if this event is for you? Hear what our previous winner Dr. Laura Kleiman of Reboot Rx (formerly Cures Within Reach for Cancer) has to say on how the 2018 Nonprofit Pitch Challenged helped her move forward the organization’s mission to find cures for cancer through drug repurposing.
Still wondering how this event will be of benefit to your organization? The first prize winner will receive a one-year MassBio nonprofit membership and a $2,500 cash award courtesy of Life Science Cares.

All the finalists will also be offered free professional coaching on how to structure and deliver their pitch prior to the event.
