The iconic Jack Daniel’s brand—and its Gentleman Jack Tennessee Whiskey in particular—is all about celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit. Jack Daniel’s has been that way for some 150 years, ever since Mr. Jack set about making the best whiskey possible using corn, rye, and barley malt.

The Pitch Distilled competition embodies Mr. Jack’s forward-thinking spirit. This year, we are taking things to a higher plane and inviting incubator groups from across the country to solve for an issue that society really could use some help with right about now. In honor of Jack Daniel’s legendary Old No. 7, seven incubators will participate—but other interested parties are welcome, too. Entries should be rooted in sustainability and reflect entrepreneurship, and that means honor, hospitality, philanthropy, and ambition. This is your chance to be original and creative in how you tell your story. Keep in mind, there is a $10,000 prize on the line and cocktail event with Adrian Grenier as guest speaker.
