Business pitch competition
Ready to take a plunge into the Shark Tank?
Have an idea for a business and want to compete against others for prizes?
This event provides students with the chance to pitch a business idea to a group of judges (AKA sharks) to win prizes.
Competitors in the EI@HCC Business Pitch competitions will be selected from the top-ranked submissions received. Proposals will be evaluated based upon their uniqueness, feasibility and the ability to impact people and society. No more than 7 teams will be chosen to compete in each of the EI@HCC Business Pitch competitions.
