Please join us for our 7th Annual Elevator Pitch Competition.
Pizza will be served in true early entrepreneur style.
No notes. No slides. Just one prospective entrepreneur stuck in a hypothetical elevator with hundreds of audience members and five judges for two minutes. It represents the real-world need for startups to be able to tell their story quickly, efficiently, and effectively without a crutch.
UCSD Chancellor Pradeep Khosla will deliver the keynote address to kick off the evening. There will be five finalists for each of the two track for a total of 10 finalists. The two tracks are the same as the Business Plan Finals:
1. Life Sciences & MedTech
2. Technology & Innovation
Following the presentations, YOU will help determine the winners! Prizes for each track are: $500 for the Judges Choice and $500 for the Audience Choice.
Visitors can pay for parking at Hopkins Parking Structure. Directions.
