The Pitch: Youth Entreprenuership in Technology

Innovative education... Engaged educators

The Next Big Idea is Waiting to be Presented

When:Upcoming Fall
Where: ED Collabitat, UMSL
Fee:TBD

The participants of the program will form small groups and collaboratively produce a new technical idea or solution to an existing problem. The Pitch is a week-long entrepreneurial program that will consist of a series of informative exercises, guest speakers, presentations, and hands on activities. Students will learn to brand, package and market their idea before pitching to industry professionals, decision makers, and community leaders. The program will teach students the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, creative thinking, and develop their professional presentation skills. Students will have a chance to win prizes that include a small startup fund, scholarships, and web design services. Our programming is built around the idea that through creative thinking and collaboration, Doers are made!
