Five students have been pre-selected to pitch their ideas to current entrepreneurs, and anyone that wants to tune in virtually. They're competing for the chance to win prize packages that include, but are not limited to, business startup resources, capital funding, and mentorship.

Mentorship packages consist of hours with accountants, attorneys and financial advisers.

 

First place is $5,000 plus a mentorship package. First place also receives a web design and marketing package.

Second place is $3,000 plus a mentorship package, and third place is $1,000 plus a mentorship package.

If you would like to attend virtually, free tickets are available here.

As part of the virtual audience, your input will help pick the winner of the crowd favorite.
