Join us for an engaging and informative session, the Perfect Pitch Competition, at the Brownfields 2023 Conference on Thursday, August 10, from 10:30 am to 12:45 pm in Room 250 A/B/C. This session is a unique opportunity to hear how to frame a pitch to “crowdsource” input from diverse stakeholders and assimilate expert advice into developing a pathway forward. The Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) providers are hosting this interactive forum that features three competitively selected respondents to a national call for brownfield projects. Our experienced team of experts, spanning public and private sectors, and the audience will thoroughly analyze each presentation, identify hidden opportunities, and provide industry-best technical insights to overcome potential roadblocks to revitalization. The Perfect Pitch experts include Shannon Morgan, Managing Partner at Renovare Development (Detroit, Michigan), Patricia A. Gage-CRE, Principal, RE Solutions ~ Redevelopment Refined (Denver, Colorado), Matt Ward, CEO, Sustainable Strategies, Washington, D.C.
During this dynamic session, attendees will have the opportunity to vote on the “Best Presentation” and “Most Likely to Succeed” while engaging in collaborative group discussions on how they would allocate up to $1,000,000 to each of these projects. The three selected contestants will receive up to $20,000 in pro bono expertise, equipping them with the tools to perfect their pitches and advance their challenging brownfield project. Don’t miss the opportunity to witness and actively engage in brownfields redevelopment. You’ll gain inspiration for your own projects and a deeper understanding of how to put underutilized properties back into productive use!
The following brownfield projects will be presented:
