Event Recap: Purpose Pitch
This past Thursday, we got the wonderful opportunity to pitch The Furever Home Friends to a group of successful business owners!
The event was held at Chicago's 1871, which is a coworking space in the Merchandise Mart for startup owners. We were so proud to be accepted to this event. The competition required an application, and only four startups were chosen to compete, our of over 50 who entered! We were so excited to be named one of Chicago's Top 4 Most Purposeful Startups!
And the best part is...
We won some money! After our five-minute pitch, we were awarded a $2,000 grant for our company. Since The Furever Home Friends is still a new small business and is in its early growth stages, every bit of money helps us launch new products and move forward. Right now, that $2,000 could comprise a much-needed marketing budget so that we can get our message out to more people outside of Chicago. It could also be used to launch a new stuffed animal, or go towards our next book.
What do you think? What would you guys like to see some more of?
