Startup Junkie Teams Up with NWA Naturals for Startup Night at Arvest Ballpark

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Startup Junkie and the Northwest Arkansas Naturals minor league baseball club will collaborate this summer for the first ever in-game pitch competition at Arvest Ballpark. 

This summer, three finalists will be chosen to have their video pitch submission broadcast during a live baseball game, as the Naturals take on the Midland Rock Hounds. The fans in attendance at the ballgame, which will be held the night of Aug. 29, will be given the opportunity to vote on their favorite pitch. The winner will be invited back to the ballpark on Sept. 2 where he or she will be awarded a check for $1,000. 

“The opportunity for entrepreneurs to pitch their idea during a live baseball game will provide great exposure to new ideas and hopefully inspire new businesses to be created from the event,” Startup Junkie Executive Director Haley Allgood said. “We're combining innovation with our nation's past time in what I know will be an evening of fun for everyone involved.”
