Pitch Day

Pitch Day is an opportunity for early-stage entrepreneurs to pitch ideas that address racial inequity, health disparities and social determinants of health (SDoH) through innovation and inclusive entrepreneurship.


The pitch day competition will be held in person in New York City and feature 12 pitches that will compete for $30,000 in cash prizes, sponsorship through the Diversity Innovation Hub Incubator, and exposure to external accelerators, VCs, and Incubators. Entrepreneurs will speed pitch to a panel of judges, and an audience of investors, DIH Partners, and industry leaders. Pitches will be grouped under the categories of Innovation, Community Impact, and Gender Equity Impact.


We are seeking entrepreneurs (either individuals or teams) with diverse and unique pitches that leverage digital health to tackle social determinants of health. DIH aims to create diversity in the healthcare innovation space.

We welcome founders from the East Harlem and broader New York City community with diverse backgrounds and skillsets.
