Our next pitch event is the Bob Mark Business Model Competition on Jan. 24, a legacy event that celebrates entrepreneurship and pays tribute to the late COB Professor of Practice Bob Mark. Contestants pitch the key components of their business models, including value proposition, customer segment and product market fit. To compete, register for the competition now. For those who compete, watch for preparation workshops such as the Business Model Bootcamp and Explaining Your Market Opportunity.
