“Pitch It Texarkana helped me monetarily. It allowed me to purchase more inventory and advertise, and with the funds – I was able to continue pursuing my business idea. Another takeaway received was the confidence in my plan. Winning 2nd place in the inaugural Pitch It Texarkana competition has made a positive impact on my entrepreneurial ideas.”

Brittney Haynes

3rd Place Winner | 2022

“Being a part of the Pitch It Texarkana event was such an incredible learning experience for me. I was equally terrified and excited to pitch my idea on stage to the community. I gained a confidence within myself I didn’t know I had! Not only did this experience open several doors for me, it gave me such an understanding on the importance of entrepreneurs and small businesses in the Texarkana community. The Pitch It Texarkana team was so supportive and helpful throughout the entire process.”
