Be Part of Austin History...

Asset 1.png

Come be part of Austin history January 27th, 2019, as 9 kid bosses take the stage and pitch their idea in front of a live audience and panel of celebrity entrepreneur judges for a chance to win prizes and funding.

Students from far and wide were invited to submit their idea and we’ve selected the top three from: 8 and under, 9-13, and 14-18 to take the stage! Just like at “adult” pitch offs our “bosses” will be judged on the problem/need, solution they offer, feasibility, their market advantage, possible revue stream, and delivery.  

Just because they are small, doesn't mean they don't have BIG ideas. 

Our 2019 Pitch YEA! Finalist—

Meet Our Judges:

Kathy Terry, P.Terry's and Taco Ranch Co-Founder, Founder of inLieu   A fierce female and serial entrepreneur, Kathy Terry has been making waves since starting her first business over 20 years ago. In 2005 she co-founded P. Terry’s Burger Stand with her husband Patrick and quickly established its presence as a socially and health-conscious fast food alternative. With fifteen P. Terry’s locations and counting (and a hot new fast casual Mexican offering called Taco Ranch) there’s no denying that Kathy Terry has helped change the way Austinites do “fast casual.”  Kathy and Patrick have a heart for philanthropy, and giving back has always been a core principle of the Terry’s business model. Through their stewardship, the restaurant chain has donated over $800,000 to date, all benefiting local nonprofits. But Kathy didn’t stop there - in 2017 she launched an all-new mobile app called inLieu: the first social giving app where users can make donations and share a personal message with a friend, anytime, anywhere.  Kathy’s mission to change the way we think about giving is a reflection of a lifetime of charitable giving and service. Her goal is simple–to make it easier for people to make the world a better place.  Kathy and Patrick live in Austin Texas with their two children, Kate and Caroline.
