How It Works
Michigan State University and Burgess Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation is the Prize Sponsor of this October 6th event. A select group of startups will be the pitch presenters and will take the virtual stage to present their new technology project or venture and answer questions from the audience. Think Shark Tank, only with no actual celebrities making offers during the meeting—that’s for you to handle later!
After each group has made their pitch, the audience will vote for the best pitch and the winner of the cash prize provided by MSU Burgess Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
Each presenter is allowed 5 minutes to present and 5 minutes of questions and answers (time limits are politely enforced). Between pitches there will be brief updates from local organizations on topics of interest to the tech and entrepreneurial community. Audience members are encouraged to make brief announcements on topics such as job openings, persons seeking employment, and other technology-related events in the online chat on Facebook and YouTube.
