WPI Student pitch competition

Schedule and Sign Up Links

Details

WPI Launchpad is hosting a Workshop Series and Pitch Competition. Students with ideas for businesses can learn, practice, and then deliver a pitch to a panel of judges. The final competition will be on Thursday, April 13th and will be hosted at Gateway in the Business School. Ideas/companies can be at any stage of development. No experience necessary!

The grand prize will include a cash prize (mostly likely around $1000-$2000) and a seat in the Startup Worcester Accelerator program (includes office space, mentorship, and training). We will also be offering a paid summer internship at the Worcester Cleantech Incubator to the winner of the Cleantech/Sustainability category. They will get to work on their business idea over the summer with mentorship to help them through the process.
