Attendees had the opportunity to go around and look at the numerous booths, including 321 Coffee, Hempsmith, and, of course, Reborn Clothing Co. . We kicked off the evening with a massive tie-dye event, our booth was hard to miss! The main event of the night was the Minute to Pitch It Competition, where participants competed to win the title of best business pitch.As CEO and founder Emily Neville watched the competition, she reminisced on the days she pitched her Reborn Clothing Co. brand at the Entrapalooza event.
The Race for a Tye-Dyed T-Shirt
Every year, Entrepalooza invites Reborn Clothing to tie-dye 150 free t-shirts, which are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Within minutes of setting up, attendees were forming a line that stretched across Stafford Commons, with people ready to get creative! We distributed Capri-Suns and an elevator spiel about the company while we interacted with our enormous crowd. Our team further encouraged folks to explore at our tables that displayed store merchandise our from North Hills store! Students were also given the opportunity to learn how Emily Neville navigated
the Reborn Clothing Co. path from a pitch at Entrepalooza to a successful business.
As the afternoon came to a finish, visitors at Entrepalooza were able to hear student entrepreneurs pitch their ideas for one minute in the hopes of winning $2,500 from audience and judge votes. Ideas ranged from apps to improve running experiences to bowls that measure the calories of the food you eat. It was wonderful to meet so many people that are enthusiastic about their ideas and to showcase the growth of Reborn Clothing Co.! If you didn’t make it, don’t worry; we’ll see you at NC State shortly.
