Entrepreneurs apply to pitch in June (names to be released soon). A committee selects the 5 finalists, and they go through peer-mentoring pitch sessions to develop a 5 minute pitch based on judging criteria. At the event, everyone will be able to hear the pitches and watch as the panel of judges evaluates and select which presenter will be awarded the $5,000. We will be holding this year's event in a blended style for people to attend from wherever they are located.

This year's event will be held in room 213 at the Pyle Center on UW Madison's campus. Directions for location and parking information will be sent to all attendees before the event.

Registered attendees will also receive an email with the Zoom link prior to the event.

We understand life happens. If you register one way and then plan to attend the other way, don't worry, all registered attendees will receive both options and be able to join the event either way.
