Elevator pitch 3584 fix sm

Students gained skills in succinctly proposing business ideas.

Ten students made short but sweet presentations during the annual Elevator Pitch Competition, sponsored by our Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit in aspiring young businessmen and women. Elevator pitch participants are challenged to imagine that they’re in an elevator with someone who has the funding and connections to help make their business dreams become reality. The goal is to pitch that dream creatively and convincingly in just 60-90 seconds. Any undergraduate student in any area of study can compete. Judges are professors from different departments including business, art, and science. This year’s winner, Nicole Johnsen, made the case for a potential on-campus food delivery system.
