Pitch & Flow: A Social Enterprise Rap Battle


Pitch & Flow is a unique impact event that celebrates the next generation of ideas, innovators and entrepreneurs using the global appeal of hip-hop. We pair the dopest emcees in the game with the most innovative social enterprises who are building solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems, then bring them on stage for an epic rap battle intended to use the power of music to spread their vision, reach a bigger audience, and inspire that audience to act.

Pitch & Flow @SXSW is proud to present the following six awesome pairings of emcees and ventures: Dumi Right and Cambridge Industries, RAS and BRCK, Nita Jonez and Invest Sou Sou, Mana and Roots Studio, In-Code and Pat G; and SymmaTree and Chooose. Austin’s own DJ EyeQ will serve as our featured DJ. Come and witness the future of communication as we tell founders to forget about their pitch decks and pair them with hip-hop emcees, the best storytellers in the game, to translate their boilerplate pitch slides into booming beats and captivating stories.
