The College-by-College Pitch Off is back!  The event takes place in all seven colleges at Iowa State University.  Students will have the chance to deliver a 90-second pitch about an idea or business they are working on to a panel of judges for cash prizes.  In addition to a cash prize, the top four winners in each college pitch-off will advance to the ISU Innovation Pitch Competition held on February 25, 2021

ALL college competitions are open to the first 25 students to apply!  If your college pitch competition is full, you will be added to a waitlist.

Existing Business Idea – concepts are beyond the idea stage – with revenues, prototypes, or products.
