Update: We WON! We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen as the Pitch Slam Champion. Our competitors' pitches were amazing and it was inspiring to meet everyone involved. Thank you, NOSH!
Creation Nation is honored to be chosen as one of five emerging better-for-you food brands to pitch at Nosh Live, Pitch Slam 5! We, along with the other finalists, will be competing for the title of Pitch Slam Champion, an interview on the livestream, and an awareness-raising advertising package. We're so excited for the competition because not only do we have the chance to become the Pitch Slam Champ (fingers crossed!), but we'll also be benefitting from a ton of industry exposure among investors, retailers, distributors, brands and other industry professionals.
We first met the Project Nosh team back at Natural Products Expo West when they filmed at our booth and posted a photo of our female founder & exec team for International Women's Day. We were grateful to be recognized amongst all the excitement! We had fun meeting them again at Expo East where we shared samples of our Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Balls that Jon Ladis affectionately called, "cookie dough gushers". We hope our 3rd meeting is "a charm" at NOSH Live Pitch Slam 5!
In order to win the Pitch Slam title, we're going to have to present a 3 minute pitch and engage in some Q&A with the judges. We're so excited for this opportunity and can't wait to hear some valuable feedback from the judges.
