During the opening pitch event, you will hear from businesses and institutions consistently generating or collecting by-product, surplus or otherwise underutilized materials streams in Austin, Texas that could be put to higher and better use in new social enterprises.

Join us for a virtual presentation to meet the material suppliers, learn more about these materials, and network with other [RE]verse Pitch participants.

This event is free and open to the public, but your RSVP is requested. Attendance is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to compete for an Innovation Fellows Prize.
