Pitch Contest: Talk Trash City #3
Trashy start-ups compete for a crowd-funded cash prize. Attendees vote on the pitch that best demonstrates its ability to help NYC reach zero waste to landfills by 2030.

By bringing people together to TALK TRASH, we hope to continue to build a community of individuals, organizations, and companies that are dedicated to developing environmentally responsible solutions to urban waste management.

Check out our past presenters on talktrashcity.org.

October Presenters will be announced by mid September.

What to expect:
1. Each Talk Trash City event will include of 3-4 presentations, (given in pecha kucha format), to a panel of expert judges and guests in attendance.
2. After each ~5-7 minute presentation, the judges will comment on the presentation and have an opportunity to ask questions.
3. Then the audience decides who will get the money raised that evening.
4. At the end, there will be time for networking with friends and colleagues.
