What is Perfect Pitch?
Pitch your idea, make a difference! A pitch competition offers an exciting forum for your innovative ideas to move from the planning stage to the real world. In the process, when you research an idea, you can learn what it takes for a compelling pitch by receiving feedback from professionals.
- Develop ideas into a pitch with the help of individual mentorship.
- Develop your public communication skills through group mentorship workshops under the guidance of lead faculty.
- Access resources aimed at helping to develop a meaningful and impactful idea and plan in a learning laboratory.
- Practice your pitch in front of skilled faculty who will provide constructive feedback and support during a dress rehearsal.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top pitch projects presented. Professional adjudicators will assess pitches based upon preset criteria (For more information, please contact us using the form below).
