Enter with an annotated 10-slide 7-minute Powerpoint or Prezi file (Pitch Deck) describing your venture and funding goal. Annotations should include speaking notes. Submit to by the deadline March 15th, 2018.

Who can enter?

The Pitch Competition is open to all current USD students or teams with at least one current USD student.

How does the competition work?

Four finalists are selected from all entrants by USD experts experienced in entrepreneurship and new venture funding. The Competition is like an actual Pitch.

What happens if I don’t make the finals?

Entrants who are not finalists can still present their venture to the investors in a special Venture Fair.

How does the competition work?

A panel of three Actual Angel Investors evaluate the pitches on V2 night.

There are 2-Stages: Each finalist has a seven minute pitch with all three investors and a 10-minute one-on-one meeting with each investor.

The investors decide how much of the $60K to award to ONE or all of the finalists.
