About this Event

An event that authentically connects our local talent and the organizations that need them in ways that traditional networking events or job fairs simply don’t. This is a high-energy, hyperlocal event that features dueling, open-mic pitches where companies looking for talent, and people that have talent, each deliver alternating 60-second pitches. The event is followed by a casual but impactful networking reception.
