2021 Pace Pitch Contest
Have an idea for a new business concept or venture? Register by Monday, March 29, in order to pitch it in under three minutes at the 17th Annual Pace Pitch Contest for a chance to win a $1000 first place prize.
The Pace Pitch Contest, now in its seventeenth year, is based on the elevator pitch concept popularized in the venture capital community. It is an extremely concise presentation of an entrepreneur’s idea, business model, marketing strategy, competitive analysis, and financial plan, which is delivered to potential investors. The premise is that it could be made in a few minutes, should the entrepreneur spot a potential investor on an elevator and have the opportunity to pitch their idea during the brief ride.
Each finalist will have exactly three minutes to pitch their new venture idea in a video to a distinguished panel of judges. In addition to broad participation at Pace, the Entrepreneur Lab also welcomes student competitors from a number of other universities, including Columbia, Harvard, MIT, NYU, Princeton, and Stanford.
Think you’re ready to compete? Register by Monday, March 29, 2021, in order to be considered. The details are as follows:
- >> Any Pace student can enter the contest. Alumni who have graduated within 18 months can, too!
- >> You must register online and complete all the necessary documents.
- >> The first prize is $1,000, the second is $500, and the third is $250.
We’re excited to see what you come up with!
