An “Elevator Pitch” competition will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, in the Havener Center (room TBD) on the Missouri S&T campus. During the competition, S&T students will have 90 seconds, about the duration of an average elevator ride, to communicate a business idea or concept and compete for prizes.
The contest is free and open to all S&T students. Students may work in groups of up to four, but only one student will present. At stake are cash prizes and a trip to the annual conference of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization in Chicago.
The campus community and general pubic are invited to attend the event.
“The idea is to practice pitching a concept to a potential investor,” says Eric Anderson, licensing specialist at the office of Technology Transfer and Economic Development at Missouri S&T. “In this contest, those who successfully communicate the potential of their idea to judges will win.”
Information and help sessions for interested contestants will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 29, and at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 6, in conference room No. 1 of the Residential College on campus.
