Description

Heights Business Incubator Program Overview:

In the Heights Business Incubator Program, students acquire foundational business concepts, then apply those concepts to the team’s new business idea. Principles from the LEAN startup movement help students test their thinking. Throughout the year, students work with volunteer business coaches and mentors and their classroom teacher. Coaches are content area experts that provide real-world perspective to lesson units. Each student team is assigned and works closely with their mentor throughout the year.

Heights Business Incubator Pitch Night 2019

Schedule:

5:30pm - 6:00pm Come early to see the Wild Card Teams and vote for one to present

6:00pm - 9:00pm Formal Pitches to Panel of Judges

Over 130 Alamo Heights High School students have formed teams and have been testing their business concepts all year. http://ahhs.ahisd.net/departments/HBI

How Pitch Night Works:

The top four teams are pre-selected to present to a judges’ panel of professional investors on May 3rd, as well as one Wild Card Team, voted on at Pitch Night. Investors judge the teams that merit funding. Teams with juniors are invited to enroll in next fall's Incubator Accelerator Course to start their business.

1st Place Team - $10,000 grant

2nd Place Team - $8,000 grant

3rd Place Team - $5,000 grant (people’s choice – decided by the audience)

From 5:30pm – 6:00pm, all Wild Card Teams get one more shot to become a finalist and formally present to investors at Pitch Night. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear these team's informal pitches and then vote for their favorite. The winning team will then join the four pre-selected teams and compete for funding.

**Must be present to vote for wild card teams
