Student entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas at the BUILD Gala.

The BUILD Gala is a fun and inspiring night that highlights our outstanding youth entrepreneurs. Three of our top student teams will pitch to a panel of VIP judges who will pick a winner together with our voting audience.

BUILD is proud to honor Katrina Lake with the Pitch Prize at the BUILD Gala.

We are proud to honor Katrina Lake with the Pitch Prize in recognition of her entrepreneurial and philanthropic spirit. Join us to celebrate Katrina’s many accomplishments as an entrepreneur and her personal experience as a BUILD mentor.


The “Pitch Prize” is named after Franklin “Pitch” Johnson, one of BUILD’s first and most important investors.  Katrina Lake will join past Honorees: Jack Dorsey, Reid Hoffman, Marissa Mayer, Ben Silbermann, Nick Woodman, Brian Chesky, Golden State Warriors, and Aaron Levie.
