At Pitch Partners, we bring local university researchers and the community together to tackle challenging issues. Up to five selected individuals and/or teams will present five minute pitch-style presentations to a panel of reviewers. Participants must be available to present in person at the event. Presenters may include a variety of visual media, including but not limited to slides, videos, and handouts.
Following each pitch, presenters will hear feedback from the panel and participate in Q&A with the audience. The event will end with pitch-specific breakout rooms for networking, sharing insights and additional input, and beginning to develop partnerships.
Presenters will be invited to apply for a rapid seed funding opportunity after the event. Participation does not guarantee a partnership or funding.
This event is free to attend and open to all. Dinner and refreshments will be provided.
