Event description



Student-Entrepreneurs: It's time for you to crush it!
Clear your calendar - It's going down! The Titan Fast Pitch Competition kicks off Saturday October 21th, 2017 at 1pm and you're invited! Come compete with or watch the most innovative student-entrepreneurs vie for a spot on the winner's podium, and their share of scholarships. All finalists are chosen in real time.

There are two tracks: one for high school and middle school students and another open to all university/college/JC students, not just Cal State Fullerton students. Competitors better be ready to pitch their concept because they will get multiple chances to pitch to our elite judges. During the first round, competitors will get multiple chances to pitch their concepts to our judges in a round robin-style format.

Don't know how to make a pitch? Watch our video here.

Scores from the first free-for-all round will be tabulated on the spot with the best competitors moving on to the Lightning Round. The Lightning Round is an accelerated Q/A panel, administered by Distinguished Judges. (Don't worry, there is a link to the Lightning Round questions below.)

After all questions have been asked and pitches made our judges will determine who the winners will be. Winners will receive scholarships and exposure for their ideas and themselves.

Do you have what it takes?
