speak at the inaugural Entrepreneurs Conference in 2011,” Oberti Noguera
said. “I’m excited to serve as a judge this year for #ThePitch: Live and
look forward to sharing helpful feedback with the entrepreneurs who will
be pitching. I encourage all attendees – both in-person and online – to
leverage our advice to take their own ideas to the next level.”

Contestants of #ThePitch: Live 2017 will be announced in the coming

turning their passion and vision into much more than that,” said Samantha
Skey, President and Chief Revenue Officer of SheKnows Media
.
“ThePitch: Live not only gives such business owners and founders the
opportunity to gain exposure and the critical feedback needed to
advance, it serves to inspire, empower and elicit support from all of
the women in the audience who may be considering their own
entrepreneurial path. The judges have a huge impact as well, and we
could not be more thrilled to welcome such a talented and dynamic panel
to this year’s competition.”
