Meet Our Amazing #BlogHer18 Health Pitchers!

We founded #ThePitch on the initiative to serve, empower, and connect female entrepreneurs.  Since launching the competition series in 2015, we’ve have had a range of incredible women take the stage to present their groundbreaking innovations improving the world around while simultaneously elevating the ratio of women-led businesses.


Last week, we hosted our first Pitch Competition for health innovation entrepreneurs at BlogHer18 Health. Camila Alves McConaughey, co-founder of Yummy Spoonfuls, an organic frozen baby food company, emceed the inspirational event, offering wisdom and positivity to our up-and-comers.

Camila guided the discussion among the amazing panel of judges and pitchers with thoughtful critiques, support, and challenging questions to push these women to reach their utmost potential.
