2010 Rocket Pitch
Friday, October 29, 2010 from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM (EDT)
Babson Park, MA
Join us for our 11th annual Rocket Pitch! Come hear the nation’s top entrepreneurship students and alumni pitch their new ventures - in three minutes or less!
Rocket Pitch is an annual competition where we invite Babson and Olin entrepreneurs (students and alumni) to pitch their business ideas to a large audience of students, faculty, entrepreneurs, investors, and service providers.
Each entrepreneur is given three minutes and three PowerPoint slides to quickly and succinctly deliver the critical differentiating elements of their business ideas. Pitches happen in rapid succession in multiple rooms. Competitors can’t answer questions during their pitch, so an open networking reception follows the competition, allowing audience members to connect with the entrepreneurs.
Rocket Pitch’s unique, fast-paced format generates a lot of excitement—be sure to join us for one of Babson College’s most electrifying events!
This year's event will take place on Friday, October 29, 2010.
8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. Registration and Breakfast (Olin Hall)
