Presenting Pitch Night With Cool Hunting
Make things? Thursday, October 9 from 6-9pm make your way to STORY for Pitch Night, our signature signature in-person product and designer open call. The event offers makers of all kinds and disciplines the chance to pitch a ready-for-market product to a panel made up of both press and retailers who are looking for new stories to discover.
STORY founder Rachel Shechtman will be joined by Cool Hunting founder, Josh Rubin as well as special guest Whoopi Goldberg, and the goal is to find new products to feature in Cool Hunting’s annual gift guide and sell at STORY.
Here’s how it works: First you MUST register via email and provide some information about the product you’re pitching. Items must be ready for sale. On the night of the event, you’ll receive a numbered slot that determines the order of the pitching process – it’s first come, first served so we suggest arriving early. Drinks will be served and you’ll have the opportunity to mix and mingle with a room full of makers. Pitches last 3-minutes and designers are asked to be prepared with line sheets, samples, business cards and anything else that helps sell the product.
Think you’ve got what it takes? Be there!
