If you have never competed - try the elevator pitch competition.

Or expand your idea & compete in the poster contest.


An elevator pitch is a concise and well thought out presentation of a business idea or new product.  You have 90 seconds to pitch your idea!  Q&A will follow!  No props! This is only about the IDEA: What? Who? Why?

The poster competition adds a level of development to your idea. This is more than an idea this is one step from having a completed business plan. You get 2 minutes to impress the judges and 3 minutes to answer questions: What? Who? Why? Model? Costs? Feasibility? You need to be prepared to ask for help with development issues, launching issues, or financing issues.
