Ninth Street Bakery holds their second community pitch party, Durham DOUGH, this Saturday, Feb 28th from 6-9pm.
Durham DOUGH is modeled after the Detroit Soup project. It’s a community dinner where diners pay $15 for dinner, and four presenters pitch their ideas for four different community led projects. The diners then vote on the best idea, and the winner takes home all the night’s proceeds, usually adding up to around $300.
Organizer Daniella Uslan says about the event,
We found that it’s a great way for projects to get the message out about their work, even if they don’t “win.” But we’ll also have contribution jars out for each project.
Last DOUGH we proudly packed forty people into the bakery, where the intrepid entrepreneur Rachel Atkinson of Native Beverage took home the night’s winnings.
This round DOUGH will focus on projects that are youth-led or have a youth focus.

We are also looking for two additional youth or youth-led groups to join. The only requirement is that the pitch presenter be a youth pitching the project from their perspective, in about 5-8 minutes. If you know of any groups, email Ninth Street Bakery.
