SlateXP participates in The Birmingham Venture Club's Spark Match pitch competition

SlateXP has been selected to be one of 8 participants by The Birmingham Venture Club as a part of the tournament-style Spark Match pitch competition this year. The competition is intended to open new doors to Birmingham entrepreneurs in an environment that is often hard for small businesses and start-ups to break into. "We are honored and excited to have been selected by The Birmingham Venture Club to participate in this contest. We are passionate about our goal of improving school climate and the positive impact it has on student performance. An opportunity to spread that message to leaders in the Birmingham community helps to raise awareness about the problems our students face in dealing with bullying and other negative impacts that result from the increased reliance on technology in schools. It is great to be able to talk about how SlateXP is a part of that solution." For more information read here (Link:

In addition to the Annual Golf Classic, the organization works tirelessly year round to raise money through other events and generous supporters, efforts which are an integral part to sustaining and creating additional opportunities for children.
