About this Event

Join Future Founders on Thursday, November 14 from 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM for the 6th Annual U.Pitch National Elevator Pitch Competition & Showcase - Presented by EY.

Watch as top students from universities all over the country compete in the ultimate elevator pitch competition for incredible exposure, connections, and part of a $10,000 cash prize pool!

After advancing through the semifinals round, finalists will present their 90-second elevator pitches on a for-profit business or idea in front of a live audience at Chicago's premier technology and entrepreneurship center, 1871. These ideas will be judged and scored by a panel of top entrepreneurs, investors, and VC's.

While judges deliberate and compare scores, all 18 semifinalists will participate in an expo-style showcase, where guests can meet with these young entrepreneurs, learn about their ideas, and cast their vote for the People's Choice prize.
