Students in the School of Business and Economics will do just that at the 2010 Michigan Tech Elevator Pitch Competition this Thursday night, November 18, at 6:00 p.m. in Fisher 135. Thirteen teams will come together, in a battle of creativity, drive, and persuasive facts. Only one team will walk away with $1,000.00 in cash.
In the competition, contestants have a limited time (like on an elevator ride) to sell a concept to someone who doesn’t have previous knowledge about their business. A three-minute time limit is placed on the competitors, who will also be competing for second ($500), third ($250), and audience-favorite ($200) prizes. You can join students, faculty, staff, and community members for this year’s event. You won’t be disappointed!
