Idea Pitch: Open Campus Invitational Competition

Thu. May 3, 2018 4:30pm - 8:00pm
Knott Auditorium

Five MSMU entrepreneurs will pitch their product or service idea to a panel of independent judges. Competitors will have the opportunity to earn up to $5,000 in prizes.

The 10-minute pitch presentations will be followed by a 10-minute Q&A session. A community of students, faculty, alumni, judges, business leaders, and investors will respond to ideas presented. The applicant(s) will have a chance to clarify, convince, and persuade the judges that their idea deserves to win first prize.

This inaugural Pitch Competition application process is open to any current MSMU student or alumnus/a of the university. The Palmieri Center for Entrepreneurship will select five semi-finalist presenters based on:

  • Value Proposition
  • Demonstrated Market
  • Innovation
  • Soundness of Idea

  • Ask
