In Pitchwerks by pitchwerksLeave a Comment

If you remember Pitchwerks #33, when Samantha Bute Hartzman told us about the Invest In Her women’s pitch competition, you know that it’s a popular event – and growing.  This week, we take a unique approach to covering the finals, speaking to each contestant right as they come down off the stage.  Stomachs jumping, hearts racing, tongues tied, they are rushed from the stage back to the Pitchwerks Podcast media booth for a surprise interview.  Like the finalists they are, they actually do a really great job.  This year’s finalists:


  • Theresa Baughman, FizzPop – Winner, Products
  • Laura Totin Codori, Worm Return
  • Diane Danforth, Americat Company
  • Debbie Jacknin, Songbird Artistry
  • Mary Jane McCullough, Global Wordsmiths – Winner, Audience Choice
  • Erica Peterson, Moms Can Code – Winner, Services
  • Katt Schuler, Rolling Pepperoni
  • Debralyn Woodberry-Shaw, ELIE Circle
