4th Annual Pitch Slam Winners

Presented by Jimbo’s…Naturally! Pitch Slam welcomed 350+ members of San Diego’s finest, from entrepreneurs and other professionals to investors, marketers, publicists, foodies, local residents, and more, at Building 177 in Liberty Station.

On the evening of April 25, five emerging brand finalists went head-to-head in a shark-tank-style competition of San Diego’s most promising group of natural products.

Entrepreneurs from each company presented their emerging brands to a panel of esteemed industry experts and engaged local audience members in a broadcast-style showdown.

Loli’s came out on top. “Being crowned this year’s Pitch Slam winner is an absolute honor,” shared Scott Zimmerman, Founder of Loli’s.

“We’re in such incredible company with this win, and we truly have no words to describe the immense joy we’re feeling right now. It’s amazing to start to see our dreams behind building this brand begin to come true.”

“We know from watching what the past Naturally San Diego’s Pitch Slam winners have done that this is going to be such a pivotal moment for us. We couldn’t be more grateful for Naturally San Diego and the opportunity that they give burgeoning San Diego companies like us.”
