About REDi All-Star Pitch Night

For the first time since REDi’s inception in 2018, five graduates will present their businesses in an All-Star Pitch Competition! Join us on November 17th to hear pitches from 5 All-Star finalists who will compete to win cash prizes and a package of professional services!

REDi All-Star Pitch Night

A program of Indy Chamber’s Business Ownership Initiative, the ReEntry Entrepreneurship Development Initiative (REDi), addresses the potential connection between entrepreneurship and reducing the rate of re-offending by providing technical business training and education to incarcerated and formerly-incarcerated individuals.

REDi Pitch Night is an opportunity for the community to support and celebrate the entrepreneurs taking control of their future. All-Star Pitch Night will be hosted at the Speak Easy in Broad Ripple.

1 of a FIND

I resell high-end antiques, collectibles, rarities, home decor, and much more that I buy at auction, thrift stores, flea markets, and I salvage a great deal of things from the trash and receive many donations of items. Half of our profits fund Indy Crime Intervention Task Force that provides mentoring, advocacy, and resources.

Kite is a mailing app that helps families stay connected with their isolated loved ones through physical postcards so during and after incarceration. The postcards are designed on our soon-to-be-launched web application that includes new features not previously pitched.
