Tribe Network has extended the application deadline for its Black Start-Up Project's pitch competition and rescheduled the pitching event itself.

The original application deadline was Nov. 18. Now, applications close today, Dec. 2 at noon, and entrepreneurs will deliver their pitches Dec. 13 as part of Tribe’s AYA Day celebrating Black entrepreneurs.

The first 50 applicants to the competition are receiving $50 apiece and 15 will be shortlisted to present in front of a panel of judges. The top five will win another $500.

Everyone who pitches will receive personalized feedback from Black mentors, entrepreneurs, facilitators and industry allies.

Founded in 2021 by social entrepreneur Alfred Burgesson, Tribe offers support and training services for black-owned companies. The Black Start-Up Project is a Tribe initiative aimed specifically at fostering Black founders in the innovation ecosystem.

Entrepreneurs who want to pitch can apply here, and anyone who wants to attend can register here.
