Rocket Pitch is an opportunity for students to share their creative business ideas with a panel of judges for the chance to win $100 cash. By offering a cash prize with no strings attached and with very few barriers to competing, we hope that students from all disciplines can start to think of their problems as potential business opportunities. You don't need to be a business major to be an entrepreneur. All you need is an idea.
The pitches are judged on four main questions:
- What is the problem?
- How big is the problem?
- What are the current solutions to the problem?
- How well does your solution address the problem?
So with a small amount of research, a student can begin the process of creating a business and will have the chance to win $100!
