Now in its 16th year, Naturally Boulder’s biggest annual event, its Pitch Slam and Autumn Awards featuring an Innovation Showcase, will be held online for the first time via New Hope Network’s Spark Change platform, allowing people all over the world to both tune in and vote for the winner.
The winner of the Pitch Slam receives a booth at Natural Products Expo East 2021 and a guaranteed opportunity to pitch at the Expo East Pitch Slam. The first-, second- and third-place winners split a prize pack of a robust suite of business services from sponsors, such as free financial and legal advice, packaging design, strategy consulting from leading marketing and public relations agencies and more–a total package worth nearly $90,000.
Following the Pitch Slam presentations, Naturally Boulder will present four Autumn Awards to celebrate exceptional “movers and shakers” in the natural products industry: the Pitch Slam Award (first, second, third place and People’s Choice vote receive trophies), the Breakout Brand award, the Industry Leader/Community Champ of 2020 Award and the Climate Catalyst of 2020 Award. The latter is Naturally Boulder’s newest award and highlights Naturally Boulder’s recent climate commitment.
