OWN YOUR MESSAGE 

“Own Your Message” was a tremendous success — filled with new connections, an exciting pitch competition, and lots of fun!

Brevity Pitch, the Minneapolis-Saint Paul-based software startup,  partnered up with Humans Get Together to show us how to pitch captivating yet concise stories and bring our ecosystem together.

The event featured:
​​

  • Light appetizers and an open bar to celebrate our tech, entrepreneurship, and creative ecosystem … and Cinco de Mayo!

  • A pitch competition brought to you by Founders Live 

  • Key tips and tricks from Brevity Pitch on owning your message

  • Psychologically safe, worthwhile, and fun networking by HGT

  • Ecosystem partners as tabling vendors: BETA, 

 

And, thanks to our presenting sponsor, Knight Foundation, ​we were able to award a total of $10,000 to five exceptional startups! Congratulations to first-place winner, Mu Okonkwo of SitEat, and second-place winner, Jasmine Russell of Sunsett.io


As we continue to imagine the possibilities of an interconnected world and ecosystem, we are so grateful for your continued trust in HGT as a safe space to be your whole self, make meaningful connections, and expand your network!
