Pitching your company for investment or in selling your product or service is one of the keys to success. Technology Association of Iowa (TAI) has a way for you to improve your pitch, Pitch and Grow XII!

Announcing the return of the entrepreneurial smash-success, TAI's Pitch and Grow XII event! Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 10 at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Downtown Des Moines (DSM).

What Happens at Pitch and Grow

Sixteen entrepreneurs each practice their pitch before a panel of industry experts and business savvy people in a supportive, judgment-free area. Each entrepreneur provides a 10-minute pitch, and then receives 35-minutes of constructive feedback and ideas for taking their businesses to the next level. Audience members take home new ideas on growth strategies for their own businesses. Everyone gains a rich networking experience in an open environment with other entrepreneurs, funders and business leaders.

Who Pitches

Entrepreneurs at virtually any stage in the business life cycle who want to practice their pitch in the areas of investment, sales or business development.


The top four pitches advance to a final round where entrepreneurs make a pitch and attendees vote on their favorite to select a winner. The winner receives the gran prize of $1,000.


The event will be held from 9 a.m. - 1p.m. Wednesday, April 10 at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Downtown DSM. Come for all or part of the day! The cost to attend is $30 (Students attend free with Student ID).

Pitch and Grow will wrap up the 2013 TriTECHta - you won't want to miss all of the excitement beginning on April 9 with i2iowa and the Prometheus Awards!
