“Pitch for Good demonstrates the kind of life-changing innovation that can happen in the time of crisis,” said Nashville Mayor John Cooper at today’s Pitch for Good event. “Problem solving is keeping our economy moving.”

The final installment of Pitch for Good in 2020, Pitch for Good: Nashville Edition focused on businesses innovating to solve Nashville-centric problems, from inequity in the college enrollment process to providing lodging for traveling nurses working temporarily at one of Nashville’s many hospitals. 

“Over the course of the series, we have awarded more than $25K in grants and over $10K in EC Scholarships and fielded applications from over 250 entrepreneurs in just 8 months,” said our CEO Jane Allen.

“I believe we can do phenomenal things by supporting entrepreneurs like myself who are innovating in Nashville,” entrepreneur Domonique Townsend said.

Our panel of judges selected the best of the best in two categories: the “Launch Stage,” which includes businesses that are just getting off the ground with little to no revenue, and the “Up and Running Stage” for businesses making over $25K per year. 

Today’s panel included four iconic Nashvillians:

One winner from each category walked away with financial grants for their business, and one crowd favorite was selected by the live audience to win an EC program scholarship. 


  • Angie Allen – CollegeLeaps (Crowd Favorite)

  • April Watson – MediQuest

  • Emily Thomas – Expected Value (Launch Winner)

Up and Running

  • Dr. Kymberly Moyer – Magnolia Family Medicine

  • Scott Campbell – Persist Nashville

  • Domonique Townsend – Work Life Success (Up and Running Winner)

Today’s category winners – Expected Value and Work Life Success – will progress to Pitch for Good: Tennessee Tough in January 2021, and will compete against other Pitch for Good winners for the opportunity to win a yearlong Tennessee Titans sponsorship.

“It’s been such an uncertain era, and we’re all, every company, going to come out of the end of this stronger,” said Bostelman. 

Thanks to our panel of judges and pitching entrepreneurs, as well as sponsors Dell Technologies, LaunchTN, the Kauffman Foundation, and Fourth Capital for their continuous support for our entrepreneurs! Weren’t able to make it? Check out the video recap here!
