Elevator Pitch Competition

Got an idea that will rock the world? Here’s your chance to get the coin to get started! Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Facebook – they were all founded by students. BC alumni have consistently been involved in high-impact ventures ranging from the founding of Netscape to the creation of the iPod.

At the Elevator Pitch Competition each team will prepare a 60 second pitch for their business idea and will present it in front of a panel of experienced entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists, who will determine the best pitches. Cash prizes will be given to the winners. It’s just as easy, and fun, as it sounds.
