About the event

Support BUILD’s transformative program as we develop the next generation of entrepreneurs, innovators, and change makers. Get to know BUILD youth entrepreneurs as you shop at the Student Marketplace. Network with New York’s leading business, education, philanthropic, and community leaders. Share the excitement as the top two student teams pitch their businesses Shark Tank–style before VIP judges during dinner. You’ll have a chance to vote for your favorite team. Stay for dessert and conversation after the winners are announced.

Sample 1 (Corporate outreach for premium tickets)

I serve on the board of  BUILD NYC, a nonprofit that uses entrepreneurship to teach high school students from under-resourced communities valuable skills they will need to succeed in college and careers.  In the process of launching actual businesses, BUILD youth gain confidence, social capital, and an entrepreneurial mindset.  I have witnessed first hand the transformational impact that this program has had.  

On Wednesday, June 1, from 6-10:00 PM, BUILD will host BUILDFest 2022, its first in-person celebration in three years at Tribeca 360, a stunning venue with sweeping views of Manhattan.  The evening will feature a Student Marketplace during cocktail hour and a Shark Tank-style Pitch Competition during dinner.  This promises to be a unique and action-filled evening that will be attended by over 250 entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, leading members of the business community, and educators.  Of course, the stars of the evening will be BUILD student entrepreneurs.

Please consider supporting BUILD’s important work by purchasing Entrepreneurship Champion tickets to BUILDFest.  Participation as an Entrepreneurship Champion offers Company X a unique opportunity to associate its brand with a pioneering nonprofit and create tremendous goodwill in the community.  

For your review, I am attaching materials describing the event and outlining ticket levels and benefits.  I  will follow up with you next week.  In the interim, if you have questions, feel free to reach out to me or contact BUILD’s Director of Philanthropy, Pam Minetti (pminetti@build.org).
