2015 [Re]verse Pitch winners, Brewnola, using spent brewery grain to create environmentally positive snack foods.

Entrepreneurs are used to pitching their business idea to investors, partners, and anyone they might share an elevator ride with. In this competition, the tables will turn. The [Re]Verse Pitch Competition is a social innovation program from the City of Austin, US BCSD and Impact Hub Austin to help turn valuable raw materials that are currently leaving local businesses, non-profits, and institutions as waste into the foundation of new social enterprises. Entrepreneurs work with mentors & advisors to develop repurposing business ideas and compete for Innovation Prizes to help start their new venture.

This year's event starts on October 11th. For more information, visit:
