Nov. 10 workshop to prepare business students for Make-A-Pitch competition


The College of Business Administration will host a workshop for student-led teams preparing for April's New Venture Competition 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10 in Grawn Hall room 278.

David Nows, associate attorney for Foster Swift Collins & Smith, will be the guest speaker at the workshop, and will be helping students understand the law for early stage ventures. 

The workshop will also focus on teaching teams how to make a successful pitch, as this will be the last workshop before the Make-A-Pitch competition Dec. 6. 

At the Make-A-Pitch, teams will have the opportunity to give a two-minute pitch in front of a panel of judges for a first-place prize of $500. 

The competition allows students to learn and improve on their idea for the New Venture Competition. During the workshop teams will be told about everything that they will need in order to be completely prepared for Make-A-Pitch. Make-A-Pitch will be held in the Grawn Hall atrium from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

Only five more workshops remain after this one and teams will be trying to acquire as much knowledge as possible to be ready for the New Venture Competition.
