BlogHer Original Post

The Pitch Keynote this year is being supported by our longtime conference partner, GoDaddy. The whole segment will be kicked off by a motivating presentation from our emcee for The Pitch, Sallie Krawcheck, chief executive officer and co-founder of Ellevest, a recently launched digital investment platform for women.



The Pitch competitors will include:

  • Barika Edwards, founder, OweYaa, a web-based platform that engages military services members and spouses through an exchange with startups and nonprofits to help them develop skills and gain civilian work experience

  • Ritu Narayan, founder of Zum, an online marketplace that helps busy parents secure trustworthy scheduled and on-demand rides and care for their kids

  • Stacy Katz, founder of Not Parent Approved, a card game for families inspired by Cards Against the Humanity that is appropriate for kids

  • Zahra Aljabri, founder of Mode-Sty, an online shopping destination for quality, stylish, and modest clothing

  • Adda Birnir, founder of Skillcrush, the country’s largest online education company focused on training women in technical topics.

Sallie will be joined onstage by the following panel of judges to offer their incisive, supportive input.



Just like last year, the winner of The Pitch at #BlogHer16 will be determined by a combination of the rankings of the judges and the popular vote of the #BlogHer16 attendees. They will receive year-long marketing, media, and promotional support from SheKnows Media.
