Elevator Pitch Competition

For current Saint Mary's students

IMAGINE THIS...

You're an up-and-coming entrepreneur. A well-known business person approaches you and asks for an "elevator pitch" on your new product or service. What do you do?! Well, because you entered the Kabara Institute's Business Idea Elevator Pitch Competition, you not only know what that means, but you're a seasoned pro at delivering your business ideas in 60-90 seconds, the time it takes to ride an elevator. You do just that, and the potential investor wants to sign on!

WHO SHOULD ENTER?

  1. Any undergraduate SMU student of any year of any major who has an idea for a new business;
  2. Students interested in enhancing their presentation skills;
  3. Students who want to explore the idea of starting a business.

OKAY, I WANT TO ENTER... NOW WHAT?

Contact Professor Teresa Speck at (507) 457-1449 or tspeck@smumn.edu to find out when the next competition is going down.
