The participant must be a current, classified UH student or UH faculty. Participants will have 1 minute to pitch and convince the live audience to support their business idea. Slides are not allowed, but other visual aids and props are permitted.
After the pitching round, spectators will have the chance to vote for their favorite idea. The idea with the most votes will be crowned MVP and win the grand prize. Spectators will also have a chance to participate in a social media challenge to go for a second grand prize.
Refreshments will be served, while supplies last. The event is FREE, but in order to be eligible for prizes, participants must pre-register by 12:00 PM on September 26. There are a limited number of spots to pitch. Walk-ins are welcome to attend to cheer on the pitchers!
