Atlanta Metro Export Challenge Pitch Day

August 25 at 4:30 pm 7:30 pm

40 SCAD Way NW
Atlanta, GA 30309 United States

The Metro Atlanta Chamber invites exporters, and those interested in exporting, from across the metro Atlanta region to attend the 2023 Metro Export Challenge Pitch Day. Meet the founders and leaders of five companies and watch as they make their pitch in front of a live audience for $25,000 in additional grant awards to support their international growth. Three lucky audience members will also have the chance to win a flight voucher, courtesy of Delta Air Lines.

The Atlanta Metro Export Challenge (MEC) is one of the largest collaborative economic development initiatives in Georgia: a program where companies compete for grants and counseling to assist their expansion to international markets. The program has awarded more than $700,000 to local SMEs since its inception and supported more than 120 area firms. The highlight each year is “Pitch Day” – in which companies that won the initial round return to compete – live – before a panel of judges.

Immediately following the pitches, join us for a reception where you will have the opportunity to engage with all six Metro Export Challenge (MEC) cohorts while overlooking the Atlanta skyline from atop SCAD Forty. Please see below for an initial program agenda:
