Elevator Pitch Contest

A new elevator pitch contest named Bulldog B.I.T.E. could win aspiring entrepreneurs up to $3,000 during the 2016 spring semester.

An elevator pitch outlines the concept or idea for a product, service or project in a short period of time, typically from 30 seconds to three minutes-and mirrors the time spent waiting for and riding an elevator in a high-rise building. The purpose of the pitch is to spur the interest of a potential investor or financial backer. Bulldog B.I.T.E., which stands for Business Innovation by Truman Entrepreneurs, is open to any student or team of students – up to three members – enrolled during the 2016 spring semester. Judges will select six teams to attend the live pitch competition in St. Louis to present their product to a panel. The top three finalists will receive cash awards.
