Project Plan Pitch Competition – 2013

What is a Project Plan Pitch: A project plan pitch is a short presentation made to persuade potential clients to select your project design over the competition. Similar to an elevator pitch, it is a pitch short enough to persuade your boss or potential client to want to learn more about your project. Our students will be given two scores, one for the quality of the project plan pitch, and one for the competitive advantage and innovative elements of their project

Elevator Plan Pitch Competition – 2013

An elevator pitch is a short presentation made by an entrepreneur raising money for a venture. The term describes a pitch that’s short enough that it could be given during an elevator ride when the entrepreneur has the only chance to talk with a potential investor. Our students will be given two scores, one for the quality of the elevator pitch, and one for the competitive business advantage and viability of the business.
