1ST PITCH – 9/9/2020

Hosted by Lilie and Rice Alliance/Rice Business Plan Competition


Here’s our pitch; Cash Prizes. Find Your People. Fund an Idea. What is yours?

Have a business idea? Looking for the people with the right skills to help you launch? Or are you interested in hearing innovative ideas from the Rice community in an interactive setting? If so, join us for the year’s first entrepreneurship event! There are two way to participate:

Pitch: Participants can apply to pitch their idea.  Presenters get 60 seconds to share their vision and let the group know what they are looking for (e.g., mentors, cofounders, developers, etc.). We will award the top three pitches with prizes.

Attend, Evaluate, and Network: Join us to hear from your fellow Owls about the problems they are tackling.  We will be mingling via Zoom breakout rooms to evaluate the teams and meet friends from across the university. You get the vote and pick the winners!
