Launch Champlain Pitch Competition

Come watch students pitch their business ideas to a group of judges and compete to win cash prizes! They’ll be pitching to and networking with possible advisors and investors to help develop their business or career. This event will be held virtually and pitches will be 5-10 minutes each. Prizes will include $1,000 for first place and $500 for second place in General Entrepreneur and Social Entrepreneur categories. Student participants are featured below. The judges include Marc Bolh from Loaa Digital, Stacey Rainey from Community Barn Ventures, and Sam Roach-Gerber from VCET.

We’ll start with a welcome and introductions at 3 PM before heading into the pitches and a Q&A with the judges at 3:10 PM. At 5 PM, the event will conclude and results will be shared by email following the event.
