Purdue's elevator pitch competition open to entrepreneurs
March 12, 2009
The competition, carrying the theme, "Stand Up, Stand Out, Go Up," will run from 2-5 p.m. in Room 121 and is open to Purdue students and faculty as well as entrepreneurs from the Purdue Research Parks in West Lafayette and throughout the state. An awards ceremony will follow.
The contest, organized by Purdue's Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program, gives each participant two minutes to describe a business venture to judges. Three minutes will be allotted for follow-up questions about the pitchers' product or service, said Nathalie Duval-Couetil, director of Purdue certificate program and associate director of the Burton Morgan Center.
There are two divisions: one for certificate program undergraduate students, and one for faculty entrepreneurs, graduate students or representatives from Purdue Research Park companies.
Winners in each category will receive prizes of $1,000 for first place, $500 for second and $250 for third. All participants will receive T-shirts for the event, which is sponsored by Otis Elevator Co. and the law firm Bose McKinney and Evans LLP.
