OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - The Midlands African Chamber wants to help Black-owned businesses succeed in our area.

Registration is open for the Pitch Black event and it will close in July.

The chamber is asking small business owners or people with a business idea to develop a business pitch and present it in a business pitch competition.

There are two organizations that have offered to help people prepare for the competition.

“One of them is through UNO and the other one is through, which is a non-profit out of Lincoln, Nebraska. Both of these organizations are there to help,” said Karine Sokpoh, President of the Midlands African Chamber.

The winner will receive $5,000. Second place will take home $2,500 and third place will get $1,500.
