CSUN Fast Pitch 2016 - Click Here for Event Program
CSUN Fast Pitch is an "elevator pitch" competition held in the Fall Semester where 10 teams of CSUN students, selected as finalists from a competitive field, have three minutes & three slides to pitch their new venture idea to a panel of judges and audience. Each of the student presentations is followed by a 3-5 minute Q&A period from our distinguished panel of judges. The competition is meant to be a prelude, or training ground, for teams to prepare for the "Bull Ring" New Venture Competition in the Spring, where prize amounts are in the tens of thousands of dollars.
