The Stetson Entrepreneurial Group First Pitch Competition
The phrase "elevator pitch" encompasses the ability of an entrepreneur to be able to tell an investor about their product in detail in the same amount of time it would take an elevator to travel up 20 floors of a building. During the first pitch competition on Feb. 20, 2014, 20 students will receive the opportunity to deliver one, 90-second elevator pitch to a panel of judges. After the pitch has concluded, judges will have two minutes for questions and answers for the pitch contestant. The winning pitch will be announced at the conclusion of the competition. This competition will have two different categories (Social Entrepreneurship and General Entrepreneurship). This type of event truly allows students from all different majors and programs at Stetson University to expand their minds and grow their ideas and foster entrepreneurship within themselves.
