Winding Up for the Pitch (NYC)

News Story

On Thursday, April 20, watch student entrepreneurs give their “elevator pitch” at the thirteenth annual Pace Pitch Contest.

Traditions don’t start out that way—they just slowly happen, becoming incorporated and indispensable to the fabric of an institution. Now in its 13th year, the Entrepreneurship Lab’s Pace Pitch Contest is certainly approaching tradition status.

On Thursday, April 20, from 5:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m., stop by the Bianco Room to watch student entrepreneurs present their “elevator pitch” to a distinguished panel of judges, potential investors, and an enthusiastic audience. Historically, the Pace Pitch Contest is one of the more exciting student competition events of the year, as ambitious entrepreneurs compete for the top cash prize of $1,000, as well as a potential life-changing investment. The seven finalists include:

  • >> Atmosphere VR: a virtual reality mobile application that will be used to improve the health and care of the elderly
  • >> Fitness Dynasty: a subscription based fitness club 
  • >> Guide U: an on-demand platform that connects students for tutoring purposes 
  • >> LookAt U: an app that functions as a personal stylist, fashion consultant, digital fitting room, and shopping assistant
  • >> Minute Mantra: a health and wellness application that helps enable mindfulness 
  • >> TouchDonation: a targeted and personalized charity donation app
  • >> VAICAM Pi: an artificially intelligent security bundle designed to assist the elderly

The final hour of the contest will feature an awards ceremony and a networking session. From volunteering apps to marketing tools to applications intended to help individuals with physical disabilities, the Pace Pitch Contest routinely brings some of the most innovative ideas and dealmakers together for an evening of excitement.
