Idea Pitch Competition

Idea Pitch is open to all Grand Valley students, and is intended to provide students with the opportunity to learn how to concisely convey an idea, improve their public speaking skills, and how to effectively utilize resources. These are all the necessary skills to possess in almost all work-related environments. This is the IPC's 12th year in existence. Pitches are elevator style, meaning they are short and informal. 

Join us in watching students from many colleges throughout Grand Valley pitch their idea to a panel of West Michigan judges. 

Prizes include: 
First Place - $1,000 + All expenses paid trip to Tampa, Florida
Second Place - $750
Third Place - $500

The event will be in the Loosemore Forum B in the Seidman College of Business. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.
