The Big Pitch

This year’s International Women's Day theme is Celebrating Women in Technology: Building Our Global Future. Through the Big Pitch event, we are encouraging college-aged, women-led entrepreneurial endeavors to come and share their ideas on how technology can be used to move the needle to address various world issues.

Each team will be asked to develop and pitch an idea which utilizes technology to solve a global problem from their perspective.  

The Big Pitch event will be held on Saturday February 23rd. It will be host to up to 25 teams of 3 representatives who will pitch their ideas to 5 judges.  

Additional details about the event:

  • Each team will have 5 minutes/5 slides to pitch their idea to the judges.

  • Teams will be provided their pitch slots upon confirmation of their acceptance.

  • Teams should be women-led. Only 3 people from the team need to attend – the lead, plus two others.

  • There will be 4 finalist teams selected to attend the 2019 International Women’s Day Luncheon on March 8th and present their pitch to our finalist judges.

If you would like to engage a team of women to participate in this free and educational event, please submit your application here 

We hope to encourage women to use their unique perspectives and knowledge to address world issues. Please share this website with your organization, entrepreneur clubs, and other interested individuals whom you feel would benefit from this experience.
