The Solution

This was a campus wide pitch training event in which 15 entrepreneurs received mentorship from our team.
CoLab, Inc. is a non-profit dedicated to empowering colleges to kickstart their own entrepreneurial program by giving them the tools necessary to host a pitch competition. They gave out $10,000 to student entrepreneur competitors in prize money. Six teams were able to pitch their business idea!
We worked with 55 student entrepreneurs to prepare them for a city-wide entrepreneurial showcase event to effectively sell their goods and services. We have co-hosted this event for two years.
