There are four (4) Micro Pitch competitions held throughout the year with a separate final pitch event occurring in November.
The Micro Pitch competitions may have up to a total of 10 participants. Micro Pitch participants will have three (3) minutes to pitch their idea in front of a panel of judges. The objective of the pitch is to define the idea or concept by explaining the product, service, or value proposition in a short duration of time, while also exciting the audience and judges about the idea’s potential.
Three (3) finalists are selected from each of the four (4) Micro Pitch competitions to advance to the final pitch event held in November. A fifth-place finisher is selected as an alternate to pitch at the final event should one of the finalists be unable to participate in the final event.
