Presented By:

The Minority Business Awards and the Birmingham Urban League introduces LAUNCH, a new 2023 program that will give local entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their business and/or product for a chance to win a $5,000 grant to aid in the development and/or marketing of their brand.  Interested participants must register here and if selected as a finalist, they will be contacted to schedule their product or business pitch with our panel of judges.  All entries must adhere to the contest rules.   

LAUNCH will be presented to the Birmingham community as a four-week on-air, on-line and social media campaign across SummitMedia’s WBHK WBHJ and WAGG and the Minority Business Awards pages. Each entrepreneur’s backstory and their pitch experience will be featured for the community to learn about them and cheer them on to the grand prize that will be awarded at the Minority Business Awards Dinner by the Birmingham Urban League with assistance from the Birmingham Business Resource Center.

The 2023 LAUNCH entry period has concluded.  Please check back next year for your opportunity to win!
