Make-A-Pitch competition to take place Wednesday


The annual College of Business Administration "Make-A-Pitch" event will take place 6-9 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5 in the Grawn Hall Atrium. 

Organized by the entrepreneurship department in Central Michigan University's College of Business Administration, Make-A-Pitch features student-led teams presenting their ideas to judges for prizes and feedback. 

Advertised as CMU's "Shark Tank," the event allows each team two minutes to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, including experienced investors, entrepreneurs and business professionals. 

Judges are given three minutes to give constructive criticism to help students improve those ideas. 

The competition drew 39 teams last year. Last year's winners were Zachary Huffman and Tim Harkleroad, the students behind the team, "Drone the News." They won a $500 gift card to the Central Michigan University Bookstore.
