OSEIA's pitch to the Awesome Foundation

  • Backyard Social 1914 North Killingsworth Street Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

Support Women in Solar at the Awesome Foundation’s finalist fast pitch night. The pitch: In collaboration with Solar Energy International, Energy Trust of Oregon, and Oregon Tradeswomen we are working to offer a pathway for women to enter into the renewable energy industry, particularly focused on creating opportunities for women of color, and those experiencing low income. We will be offering a free, women-led training, serving women already working to build their job skills in October and want to make a mini movie about it!

More about the Awesome Foundation : Awesome Portland gives away 1k grants every other month. We select 5 finalists and invite them to 'pitch' their projects in front an audience and then participate in a Q&A session. The trustees award the cash on the spot to the finalist that best represents something AWESOME. We'll then let the audience pick a 'People's Choice' winner and we'll give that lucky person a 100 bucks. Woohoo!
