Pitch Night – Open to any high school student in the Wayne County region. Individuals or teams will have 5 minutes to pitch their business idea, plan, and details to a panel of experienced and knowledgeable students from Earlham College. The winning pitch receives $500 in seed funding to start developing their business! They will also become part of the growing network of mentors in the region that can help them navigate the challenges of entrepreneurship.
Students end the evening with the opportunity to meet other innovative and intelligent students as well as local business leaders and spectators.
This is a spectacular way to make an actual difference in how real-world businesses operate, as well as to build your network and learn the process of innovation.
