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 First Place winner in each college pitch off will advance to the ISU Innovation Pitch Competition held March 7, 2019
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. We encourage all to be part of the audience!
1st Place Winner (in each college pitch off) = $500 cash prize, in addition to advancing to the ISU Innovation Pitch Competition
Runner-up Winners (two in each college pitch off) = $250 cash prize
