The Panther Pitch is a campus wide competition that challenges students to create, refine, and deliver innovative and entrepreneurial ideas that address societal challenges.
Students work in and out of the classroom with faculty and volunteer mentors to develop and strengthen the quality of their concepts before submitting proposals for review and screening. Finalists are invited to pitch their ideas before panels of expert judges and a live audience. Winning Teams stand to gain financial incentives, academic accolades, and social prestige.
The Panther Pitch is a culminating moment for the presentation and evaluation of ideas. It may also mark the start of implementation for some, but most importantly, this experience equips the next generation of Panthers with tools and experience necessary for becoming leaders with the ability to make positive contributions in their field.
