Hustle Humble September Pitching Event Recap

 

Celebrating our CEO Kailynn’s new bundle of joy with beautiful hues of blue ombre, September’s speed pitching event was a stylish, super fun success!

 

 

At ChicExecs HQ, the office was filled to the brim as local entrepreneurs connected with buyers, media, and social influencers! New relationships were born with small businesses as they networked with the best in the bizz.

Putting the passion back into pitching, we had so much fun empowering businesses this month. Explore the gallery below to see more of this awesome event!

 

Picture Perfect Panels

 

When the ladies of Chic weren’t getting their hair braided or setting up killer decorations for this event, they were diligently timing and helping out with the picture perfect panels!

With three different panels for entrepreneurs to pitch to – media, buyers, and influencers – these businesses were set up for success! A few of the brands who pitched their passion included baby brand CarriEight, AirFort, Diva Dog, Ghost Scream, Studio Penny Lane, and the delightful jewelry designs from Nomad West! 

 

Media 

 

 

With several brands heading into the Media panel to pitch their business, many learned valuable lessons on building brand identity and how to best be prepared for segments, whether they be on live television or print.

Some of the magnificent media in our panels included:

 

San Diego Business Journal 

Family Entourage

Chelsea Day – Someday I’ll Learn

 

Influencers 

 

 

Our Social Influencer panel was able to give the brands that attended insight on the world of influencer marketing. Brands had the opportunity to pitch their product and get feedback from established influencers on how to best navigate the process of choosing an influencer that aligns with their brand’s unique identity and needs.

 

Here are a few of the savvy social mavens who attended:

Buyers 

 

 

Giving sage advice to brands on what buyers are looking for in the retail industry to keep a competitive edge, small businesses like The Argan Project gained key knowledge to establish a strong brand presence.

Thanks to the wonderful Sarah Nicholson from Zulily for bringing her wealth of knowledge to the panel!

 

Here For The Food

 

 

 

With You Had Me At Cool adding a tasty chill to a hot day and Big Wave Grill providing mouthwatering grub, this event was off to an appetizing start!

 

It’s The Little Things

 

 

 

 

At Chic, we are all about stepping up our decoration game! With a blue ombre theme for the arrival of our CEO’s tiny treasure, everything had a beautiful, bold and tastefully teal color!

It didn’t stop there! With a braid and glitter bar by Elwynn + Cass for all of the hard-working Chic ladies, a customized photo booth, party favors, and fun outdoor games it’s safe to say everyone had a good time.

 

 

From all the ladies at ChicExecs, thank you to everyone who came out to this incredibly fun and fab event!
