Business Pitch Competitions (BPCs) are the culminating events for hard-working Entrepreneurs-in-Training (EITs) completing the CEO of Your New Life program. The event will begin with Defy’s signature icebreaker exercise designed to help create an inclusive and accepting community. During a BPC, EITs will present their business ideas in a Shark Tank-style competition to panels of esteemed business leaders and investors. At the end of the day, EITs graduate from the program in a cap and gown ceremony and receive a certificate of completion.

Giving value is its own reward, but many of our Volunteers report that they often received even more than they gave in terms of humility, humanity and hustle. They also report feeling more energized and empowered to take charge of their own lives after attending a Defy events like this one. Many come back again and again, unlocking untapped potential in their own lives and the lives of others.
