After the success of last year's Pitch + Drink + Make, Cool Hunting is putting on its second edition of Pitch Night in collaboration with NYC's innovative boutique Story. On Tuesday, 22 October, join Story founder Rachel Shechtman and Cool Hunting CEO Evan Orensten for an ideas-driven evening of craftsmanship and cocktails. Joining Pitch Night 2013 are the founders of the newly-launched online maker marketplace Brika—so be sure to find them as you're making the rounds. We're encouraging creators of all kinds to bring their brand to the table for a chance at a feature in our CH Gift Guide—just in time for the holiday season—as well as a chance to be carried at the Holiday Story boutique. Last year's inaugural Pitch Night pulled a substantial crowd, and a number of the creators got their own CH story along with Gift Guide features and Story deals.
There are no winners or losers at Pitch Night; there are cocktails and mingling with makers and buyers. All you have to do is RSVP and show up at Story with a product sample and a three-minute pitch. You'll receive a time slot on a first come, first serve basis. We're looking forward to scoping out the city's talent and seeing what local makers have to offer. You make the pitch—we make the platform.
