2022 Panther Pitch

October 20, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Hey UWM! Got an Idea?  First timers AND experienced pitchers are invited to share ideas and compete for awards.  

First time pitchers will be able to work closely with professionals from Y.E.S., Northwestern Mutual, and others who have launched a start-up business venture to develop an impactful pitch. Later, three winners will be selected for the Entry Level competition.

For those who have more experience delivering pitches, it is strongly recommended to submit additional information in the registration and compete separately for a larger prize. Participants are competing for: First place, Second place, Third place. Experience Level pitchers will start by participating in their pitch competition, then they will take part in the workshop to help the Entry Level pitchers with their pitches. This group will be notified that they qualify for the advanced competition one week before the event via phone and email.  

Refreshments will be provided.
