Pitch Perfect: Titan Fast Pitch Offers 60-Second Platform to Student Entrepreneurs – CSUF News

Titan Fast PitchCSUF News recently published a story about the upcoming CSUF Fast Pitch. Here’s a brief synopsis and you can see the whole thing by going to their article.

If you had only 60 seconds to pitch your startup idea, turn heads and hook investors, would you take the challenge?

Business owners take the challenge often, in elevators, on golf courses and on flights. Now, middle school and high school curriculum includes business education and kids have joined college students in the quest to master the pitch for their real-world business plan.

Hundreds of students are expected to take the challenge at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at the Titan Fast Pitch, hosted by Cal State Fullerton’s centers for Entrepreneurship and Economic Education, and by the National StartUp League.

The next generation of entrepreneurs — students from universities, high schools and middle schools — will gather at the Titan Student Union for the three-hour event.

Participation has doubled and nearly tripled in its five years, especially after the competition was opened up to high school and middle school contestants, says John Bradley Jackson, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship.

“As we meet with teachers we have a better understanding of how business education, specifically entrepreneurship, and the ability to pitch your idea have become mainstream in the middle school and high school classroom,” says Jackson.
