One Stage.
8 Lyft Drivers.
$30K in Cash Prizes.

For these entrepreneurs, driving with Lyft has become a catalyst to opening a boutique, refining a product, or simply putting food on the table while they launch their business. And with Lyft, drivers have earned over $1.5B to support their families and professional endeavors.

That’s why Lyft is launching Lyft Pitch, a venture pitch competition celebrating (and funding) Lyft drivers who are entrepreneurs. We’re excited to report that these individuals are not isolated to the tech industry or Silicon Valley. That’s why we’re kicking off the program by celebrating entrepreneurship from the mid-Atlantic region.The competition kicks off on September 26 and culminates on November 14 at the Lyft Pitch finals in DC when eight finalists take the stage for a chance to win $30,000+ in cash and in-kind prizes.

Join us at the historic Blind Whino SW Arts Center to cheer on our finalists as they give a pitch of a lifetime in front of a packed house and judges with decades of combined business and investment expertise. The event will also feature a vendor marketplace where 20+ Lyft drivers will exhibit their businesses, live entertainment, and an open bar and free snacks sourced from local businesses.
