Naturally San Diego’s Fourth Annual Pitch Slam

About the Event

Naturally San Diego, a nonprofit organization dedicated to stimulating growth and entrepreneurship amongst environmentally and socially-conscious consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies in San Diego County, is excited to host its Fourth Annual Pitch Slam.

On April 25th, Naturally San Diego’s five emerging brand finalists will compete head-to-head in front of a panel of industry-expert judges and local audience members, with entrepreneurs from each company taking the stage. One brand will come out on top as voted on by the panel, winning a suite of prizes from the local San Diego community to help propel their company’s growth. With more than $150k worth of prizes awarded to date, these San Diego brands are being set up for success by Pitch Slam and Naturally San Diego to take their companies to the next level.

This year’s Naturally San Diego Pitch Slam finalists include:

BAM – deliciously creamy, slightly nutty, gluten and dairy-free plant-based milk.
Loli’s – sauces, dips and dressings that give you everything you need for gut health.
Madly Hadley – delicious plant-based organic coconut bacon and cashew parmesan.
Mesa de Vida – chef-crafted, globally-inspired meal starter sauces.
Sipwell – premium, sustainable canned wine with a can-do spirit.

“Pitch Slam is a wonderful event that’s become an integral part of uplifting the CPG community in San Diego,” said Kierstin Rielly, Executive Director of Naturally San Diego. “As finalists, these brands are being supported by a powerful, dedicated network of CPG experts, business owners, investors, and consumers who are passionate about not only their success, but about growing and supporting our larger community of entrepreneurs here.”

Presented by Jimbo’s…Naturally!, Naturally San Diego’s Pitch Slam is open to anyone in San Diego to attend, from entrepreneurs and other professionals to investors, marketers, publicists, foodies, local residents and more. The event will take place on Thursday, April 25th from 4:00-7:30 pm at Building 177 (2875 Dewey Rd) in Liberty Station.

Beyond the Pitch Slam itself, event attendees can network in-person with 350+ members of the natural products community in San Diego, enjoy hosted drinks, desserts and samples at onsite booths hosted by local restaurants and brands, vote on the People’s Choice Award, and take home a goodie bag stocked full of products and coupons from Naturally San Diego sponsors.
