WHY ENTER FAST PITCH?
Entering Fast Pitch is a great way to receive feedback and advice, get exposure for your startup, and prepare for the "Bull Ring" New Venture Competition in the Spring, where prize amounts are in the tens of thousands!
STUDENTS INTERESTED IN COMPETING
Time to shine! It's highly recommended (though not required) that you attend the "Startup Workshops" in the weeks leading up to the application deadline to discover more about the entrepreneurial process & journey, learn the "lean startup" method, and meet like-minded students/future team members. The workshop schedule can be found below.
