The River Pitch Business Idea Competition was created to help ideas and early-stage businesses further progress. There is no entry fee and the event is open to both students and community members alike. The slate of competitors will be divided into separate booths with several teams competing at each booth. One presenter from each team will have up to 3 minutes to pitch their idea, and the judges will have up to 5 minutes to ask questions of the presenter. After all teams have pitched, the judges will deliberate and a $1,000 prize winner from each booth will be announced.
