Propel Pitch: A Virtual Competition of Jewish Atlanta Innovation

January 14, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Who Has the Next Big Ideas?
These Propel Pitch Night Judges Will Decide

Up to $100,000 in grant money will be on the table at Federation Innovation’s first-ever Propel Pitch: A Virtual Competition of Jewish Atlanta Innovation, set for Thursday, January 14, 7:30 pm. Propel PItch was created to amplify the potential of Propel Innovation grant recipients and celebrate them as changemakers who are bringing important ideas to fruition.

You’re invited to join community members and grantee supporters for this exciting event as our innovation contenders vie for increased project funding.  A panel of luminary judges, from across the Atlanta community, will evaluate and award funding of up to $100,000 to the most innovative and impactful ideas in Jewish Atlanta. They’ll bring years of business experience to bear as they challenge the finalists with probing questions that will determine who gets additional funding.
