The Pace Pitch Contest is based on the Elevator Pitch concept, popular in the venture capital community. It is an extremely concise presentation of an entrepreneur’s idea, business model, marketing strategy, competitive analysis, and financial plan, which is delivered to potential investors.

Each finalist will have exactly three minutes to pitch their new venture idea to a panel of Pace alumni entrepreneur judges and an enthusiastic audience. Cash prizes will be awarded. $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place, and $250 for third place.

And if you want to win it, you’ve got to be in it! To register as a contestant, fill out the online registration. The deadline for registration is 5:00 p.m. EST on April 1. If competing as a team, all members must complete the form individually. You should review How to Enter the Pace Pitch Contest for information on the criteria and important dates and Guidelines and Judging Criteria to help prepare for the contest.
