1st Pitch

Have an idea for a new product, invention, or business? Looking for the people with the right skills to help you launch? Or are you interested in hearing innovative ideas from across the Rice community in an interactive setting? If so, join us for First Pitch – the first Rice Entrepreneurship event of the year! There are two ways to participate:

Rice students can enter to pitch their idea, or attend and watch pitches from your peers by filling out the form below.

There’s no selection process for pitches – everyone will get a chance to present for 60 seconds to share your vision and let the group know what you are looking for (e.g., mentors, cofounders, customers, etc.)

You don’t need to have any special background or prior practice – we’ll help teach you how to give a compelling 60 second pitch of your business idea to solve the problem you’re most passionate about.
