Fast Pitch

How Does Fast Pitch Work?

The “Fast Pitch” sessions are 15-minute meetings between corporations and MBEs. There will be a quick exchange of background information and the sharing of each organization’s business needs. Most importantly, “Fast Pitch” allows the MBEs to share their capabilities with sourcing professionals. This is an opportunity for each company to start and build relationships that may lead to mutually beneficial business deals in the future.

Companies committed to Fast Pitch:

  • BMW
  • Grady
  • Hanger
  • McKesson
  • NI
  • Oshkosh Corporation
  • Siemens
  • The Home Depot
  • Trane Technologies
  • UPS
  • Vizient
  • More to be Announced

 

 

The Process of Selecting Companies

When MBEs register for the National MBE Manufacturers Summit, they are given a link to complete a profile of their company. We send these profiles to the corporations two weeks before the Summit. Corporations select the MBEs they will meet with and our technology schedules the meetings. MBEs and corporations will receive confirmations for all meetings scheduled.

What are the Times?

There will be Fast Pitch sessions from 12 p.m. – 1:15p.m. and 3:30 – 5:15 p.m. on May 12th and at 3:30p.m. to 5:15p.m. on May13th. However, the entire Summit is designed for continuous meetings and networking throughout the event.
