The National Black Business Pitch (NBBP) was a virtual pitch competition designed to connect Black-owned businesses to corporations looking to expand and diversify their supply chain with new products and services. The National Black Business Pitch (NBBP) Competition looked to do more than supplying a seat at the table for black business owners, the long-term goal is to open doors and build relationships that can lead to long-term and sustainable contracts for those companies that participated.
