In between pitches, a live band plays dance music, keeping the energy high and the atmosphere lively. To add to the entertainment value, contestants must share three secrets about themselves. The audience then votes to determine the winner, making this a fun opportunity for entrepreneurs to showcase their ideas while having a good time.

"I used the prize money to rent out the space to teach my plant-based cooking class."

Quiaufa "Sherri" Royes is Executive Chef and Owner of Quiaufa's Kitchen. She grew up in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn, New York. From a young age, she learned to cook with her grandmother and studied The Food Network programming. She founded Chef Sherr's Catering LLC in 2014, with a focus on preparing international soul food. Quiaufa's Kitchen now focuses on providing healthier versions of traditional southern cuisine, with health-conscious dietary features such as reduced sodium and sugar alternatives. In Quiaufa's Kitchen, soul food means food that makes you feel at home. On the use of the $1,000 she won at the Back-to-School Edition of The Pitch Show, in May 2023; I used the prize money to rent out the space to teach my plant-based cooking class. I also used it to buy supplies for the class such as knife sets, oven mittens, spatulas, peelers, and garlic pressers. I purchased the ingredients for my lesson as well as plates, and utensils. Lastly, I used it for pantry staples also known as seasoning. I purchased herbs, spices, vanilla, and vegan mayo. Winning the prize money was essential to my business because it made my goal a reality. It helped me to do something new with my business that I haven't done before. The prize money helped challenge myself in a way I haven't before. Most importantly it helped families learn how to cook healthier meals in their homes.

“Pay it forward"

I'd like to thank Mr. Siege and everyone else involved in The Pitch Show for the opportunity to compete. It is an honor and a privilege to be apart of things like this and I take it very seriously. I practiced my pitch as much as I possibly could and prepared for as many questions as I could. This experience has made me want to pay it forward. I want to host my own pitch competition someday for early stage entrepreneurs in an effort to support and uplift them. Thank you again

"increase inventory of the hats made"

My pitch was nfc chip powered hats that can share information through your clothing. The $500.00 prize money was used to increase inventory of the hats made. 30 bucket hats were bought, and then a designer was paid to distress them to give it the aesthetic look . Additionally the high quality patches and nfc chips were bought from a manufacturer. I have currently made numerous sales on the hats and I continue to develop the platform to accommodate more people. The next steps would be getting a provisional patent application for the technology to protect the idea. Then mass production and advertisement can begin !

"re-instilled my confidence "

Receiving one thousand dollars towards my current business venture was an exhilarating experience. More than a dollar amount, winning first place in the prize show re-instilled my confidence in pursuing my business. With all the excitement of winning, I was left to decide how I could use the prize money to further my business. My first expense was to cover those basic costs of starting a business. Filing the documents, paying the fees, and purchasing the required signage from the Department of Labor.
