“The worldwide touring industry has stopped. We have the momentous opportunity to come together and come back better, more organized,” said TM App founder Timothy Burkhead.

“We have a great respect for those who have the vision and the imagination to envision a better world – the things and  products and services it will take to get us there,” said Gil Beverly, Senior VP/Chief Marketing & Revenue Officer for the Tennessee Titans and Pitch for Good: Music and Entertainment Edition judge.

Six cutting-edge music and entertainment entrepreneurs pitched today for the opportunity to walk away with financial grants for their businesses and a chance to pitch for a Titans sponsorship in January 2021.

FanFlex founder Erik Nelson, and TM App founder Timothy Burkhead each won $2,000 grants for their businesses, while Ira Akers, founder of CUE Audio, was awarded the title of “Crowd Favorite” and a Nashville Entrepreneur Center scholarship.

Winners were determined by a panel of professional judges, including:

Gil Beverly – Senior VP/Chief Marketing & Revenue Officer for the Tennessee Titans

Brian France – Former CEO and Chairman of NASCAR and Founder of Silver Falcon Capital

Sammy Rubin – Co-Founder of Triller and founder of Big Room

Damon Whiteside – CEO of ACM – Academy of Country Music

Winners from each Pitch for Good event in 2020 will get the chance to present again during Pitch For Good: Tennessee Tough, for the opportunity to win a yearlong sponsorship with the Tennessee Titans. 

We are proud to have partnered with Dell Technologies, LaunchTN and the Kauffman Foundation for this event! Weren’t able to tune in? Watch the video here!
