The Center for Entrepreneurship is proud to announce that their next Fast Pitch Competition will be held on Saturday, November 8, 2014. Kicking off at 10:00am this event will feature University and High School tracks (registration info here) and the top finishers from both tracks will win prizes. General registration is free for all contestants and general audience members.
Fast Pitch competitions like this provide students interested in entrepreneurial activities an avenue to explore their interests, a forum for community members (entrepreneurs, students, teachers, business professionals, etc.) to network and share ideas, and Fast Pitch competitions lead to economic growth by supporting business formation.
One of the unique aspects of this Fast Pitch Competition is the centrality of the crowd. The crowd at the event will be able to use their mobile devices to vote on who has the best pitch. Also, all of the funds for this competition will be raised from the crowd as the Center for Entrepreneurship will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to fund this competition.
Details are still being ironed out for the competition and for the crowdfunding campaign as well. If you are interested in keeping up-to-date on the Fast Pitch Competition please enter your information here.
