News Release: NGLCC Introduces Sip & Pitch Fridays

COVID-19 Member News Release

As we at the NGLCC remain committed to keeping our LGBT and allied business community strong during this time of uncertainty, we invite you to participate in our new initiative – LGBT Sip & Pitch Fridays – where you’ll have a chance to informally present your business to a panel of experts and your fellow business owners for positive, constructive feedback and new ideas. This exciting program is an important addition to our NGLCC COVID-19 Resource Hub for the LGBT Business Community and NGLCC Webinar Wednesdays programming.


If you have a five-minute (or less) presentation with all the bells and whistles: great! If not: that’s great, too! Simply bring your “elevator pitch” and any messaging you’d like to work on with our corporate experts. This is an open forum, and although these are mock pitches, these programs are a tremendous opportunity for the LGBT business community to enjoy:


  • No-cost constructive feedback to help you improve your pitch, whether a casual elevator pitch, coordinated matchmaking opportunity, or formal pitch for upcoming RFPs
  • Judgment-free, safe-space for you to practice your pitch. Everyone in the room wants to help you succeed and share best practices
  • See and be seen by representatives from NGLCC Corporate Partners and fellow Certified LGBTBE® companies seeking your goods & services. Participation is a great way to build relationships with key buyers and strategic partners while presenting to a national audience eager to see your innovations
  • Learn what other NGLCC Certified LGBTBE® suppliers do. You will likely be amazed to hear what some of your fellow NGLCC members are up to which could lead to ways for you to work together


CLICK HERE to fill out the application to pitch. The first program will be held on Friday, April 24, and the application is rolling for future opportunities.


Lastly, we know how important face-to-face networking is in our community, so for the final hour of the program, ALL members of the LGBT and allied business community in the NGLCC network are welcome to pour a drink of your choice – with everything from coffee to cocktails welcome – and casually network with your fellow community members over digital video.


Our community is sustained by our resilience and commitment to helping one another through the good times, as well as the challenging ones. So come with a joke, a story, or just a friendly face as we continue to develop our LGBT business community and affirm that all of us in the NGLCC family will get through this together.
