This year's Expo West Pitch Slam narrowed down a large pool of applicants to three standout contestants:
- NWC Natural Pet Products
- SoapBox Soaps
- Earth Source Organics
Each company was given five minutes to present their mission, model, story and ultimate goals as a brand. The winner? SoapBox Soaps, who took home the grand prize of a full day of consulting from Sterling Rice Group, a half-month of consulting from MetaBrand, a private placement memorandum, a year of membership with NEXT Accelerator, a free booth at Expo West or East, and more.
