Advertising/Performing Opportunity

The Entrepreneur’s Club at Michigan Tech invites all Michigan Tech organizations and students to participate in the 2012 Bob Mark Elevator Pitch Competition. The Competition will be held on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 6:00 PM in Fisher 135.

The Elevator Pitch Competition is meant to stimulate student entrepreneurship by allowing teams to pitch business concepts in a very short amount of time as if they were on an elevator with an investor.

Since we expect a large audience, we would like to integrate into the event the chance for organizations and individuals on campus to advertise or do some sort of short entertainment performance – dance, sing, juggle, whatever! – during the event.

For all performers, there will be a dress rehearsal the night before…. same time; same place.
This event is sponsored by the School of Business and Economic, the MTEC SmartZone, and the Entrepreneurs Club.
For questions or to sign up please contact Travis at or 989.317.6631
