Creative Enterprise

ArtWorks Big Pitch presented by U.S. Bank, was a mentorship program and pitch competition for established creative businesses.

The program was designed for creative businesses that were established for at least two years, whose headquarters were within 30 miles of the ArtWorks downtown office. Eight finalists were selected through a competitive application process to participate in the program, and they were paired with a business mentor and U.S. Bank Small Business Banking Specialist.

Over the course of the program, each finalist received mentorship and coaching as well as pitch help and business planning assistance. The program culminated in a public pitch event , in which finalists will compete for a business grant.

In 2019, after much consideration, ArtWorks has decided to end the program. Read more on this programming update on our blog.
