Preparing for Purpose Pitch!
If you have been following us on our Facebook or Instagram, I'm sure you've heard our good news: we have been selected as a finalist to compete at Purpose Pitch!
Purpose Pitch is a competition for Chicago startups who have a strong mission or purpose for what they do. We applied last month, and were SUPER excited to make it to the competition! This was huge news for us--only the top 4 companies make it to the pitch round! Because of that, we have already earned the distinction of "Top 4 Most Purposeful Startups in Chicago, 2018."
This Thursday, though, is the big pitch event! We'll be giving a five-minute pitch to big business leaders, with an audience of audience of about 300 people, competing to win up to $15,000. This could be so big for us! If we get some funding like this, we can probably get Allee and Wrigley's stuffed animals released along with Chewie's! Plus, we can get more books and stuffed animals off the ground, and we can build a marketing budget so that we can spread our mission of educating kids about social justice, bringing awareness to shelter animals, and helping out dogs in need.
Since we'll be at the pitch event this Thursday, there will be no blog post. However, make sure to visit us again next Tuesday, where we'll be recapping how the event went, then returning to more Dogs of the Day!
Wish us luck!
