Do you have a great idea for a business? Would you like a little cash to get your idea up and going? If so, then you need to check out the pitch contest hosted by Weber States Hall Global Entrepreneurship Center. Contestants get to present their idea to a board of judges, with the winners receiving cash prizes! First place takes home $1000, with 2nd and 3rd taking home $500 and $250 respectively.
The Hall Global Entrepreneurship Center established the pitch contest to give students the opportunity to gain experience pitching their ideas to business leaders, as well as getting funding to help them get their business started. The top three finishers are also automatically entered as a semi-finalist in Weber State University’s business plan competition, Opportunity Quest, which takes place in January.
Application deadline is October 7th if you would like to pitch your idea. If you would like to go watch the excitement, the pitches will be presented October 16th at noon in the fireplace lounge. For more information visit the Hall Global Entrepreneurship Center at their website.
