Q: What do these women have in common?
A running coach from Maryland with an white-pawed dog obsession
A nordic skier from Vermont who travels the world
A mountain biker from California who holds the record for 1,000,000 feet climbed in elevation
A marathoner, former law clerk, and formidable litigator from Tampa
A: Aside from being badass athletes and business women, they’re all winners of 2022 Pitchfest Outdoor Edition — our fifth annual festival of women entrepreneurs rallying at T9 HQ to pitch their products, connect in community, and engage in a little friendly competition. (more…)
We’re back at it this September with our fifth (!!!) annual Pitchfest Outdoor Edition! Here at Title Nine we’ve spent over 30 years searching high and low for adventure approved gear created by badass women. It takes a lot of grit, patience, and just the right amount of crazy to be an entrepreneur. And that’s just the kind of game-changing spirit we wanna support.
Our 2022 Pitchfest Outdoor Edition finalists are throwin’ down smart, sustainable, creative solutions that really up the ante for the outdoor sports and adventure world. (more…)
For the second year in a row, our minds are blown.
When we started the nonprofit edition of our Pitchfest initiative in 2021, we could only have imagined how many courageous women we’d get to know who are doing the truly hard work of creating impactful programming to support other women.
In this second annual Pitchfest Nonprofit Edition, we’re even more in awe and properly inspired! This year’s applicants shared stories of missions and causes so hard-hitting, we decided to switch up our usual pitch-forward programming and shift gears to a workshop focus where we could dig into new ways to connect in community.
What we really needed was a kitchen table where we could sit with these stories and understand the gritty, practical ways we could help the individual goals of each organization. So we built and filled up our own version of that kitchen table by inviting back a few past finalists and serving up key roundtable discussions with T9 team members, veteran activists, and local leaders. Because we know that it’s not the kitchen table that’s important, it’s who gets in there to pull up a seat.
Before we got down to the nitty-gritty pitching, finalists got to pick up practical strategies in branding and content workshops with T9 marketing pros, ask a bunch of questions in 1:1 mentor meetings, and learn all about power tools at Girls Garage, a local design and construction school.
Now, about those Finalists! (more…)
Some call us creators, inventors, and trailblazers. Others call us “mom.” But we’re a band of women just like you.
We are athletes and designers, product testers and product users, outdoor adventurers
and playground monitors, and we deserve gear that fits our bodies, our lives, our adventures.
For over three decades, we’ve been solving the tricky performance apparel problems for women athletes and adventurers. Let’s call them “Women’s Problems.” (more…)
