UTC CEO

Elevator Pitch Competiton

You are planning to start a small business, but need funding. You just so happen to step into the elevator with a multimillionaire who asks to hear your business plan. You have 90 seconds! Go! The Elevator Pitch Competition provides students with an opportunity to pitch their business idea to faculty and staff, local investors, and local small business owners. The winner(s) of the competition will receive $2000 cash (split among the team if you enter as a team), free counseling from The Company Lab and the Lamp Post Group and an all-expense paid trip to the regional CEO conference in Tampa, FL.  The second round of the competition will be held on January 22 at 3:00 p.m. at the Hamilton County Business Development Center (100 Cherokee Blvd) . This event is open to all UTC students to attend! Admission is free!
