2016 Business Pitch Competition

What’s your big idea?

Think you have the next great business idea? Come pitch it to our panel of judges, win up to a $1,000 and be eligible to receive up to $15,000 towards bringing your idea to market.  The 2016 “What’s Your Big Idea” Business Pitch Competition is underway and applications are being accepted until 5pm on February, 15th. 

Judges will select the top 10 ideas based on potential and student passion to pursue. The top 10 will then be paired with a Mentor during our “Mentor Speed Networking” event. Over the course of the following 6-8 weeks, the top 10 will work with their mentors and JCEL, attend various preparations sessions to determine the feasibility of their ideas and prepare a final video-recorded pitch.

The final five will be selected based on feasibility of their ideas and ability to pursue while enrolled at Juniata and will present their ideas to a panel of judges with the winner taking home $1,000 and the opportunity to have their startup funded up to $15,000.
