MIT Elevator Pitch Contest ~ Finale Thurs 10/29!
Definitely check out the Finale of the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition's Elevator Pitch Contest this week Thursday, 29 October 2009 from 7-9pm in Kirsch Auditorium! Last year Riccardo Signorelli won for his one minute Pitch on electricity storage venture FastCap. Who of the over 300 entrants this year will make it all the way to the Finale? Twelve semifinalists (two from each track) will be announced in random order and invited to redeliver their new venture Pitch in one minute or less. Both a new panel of Judges and the audience will decide on 4 prizes for $10,000 in cash. $1,000 for the Audience Choice award, $2,000 for 2nd and 3rd place winners, and $5,000 to 1st place winner for the best Elevator Pitch overall. That's serious coin for 60 seconds of work;-) See you Thursday night!
