Elevator Pitch Contest

Pitch your business idea and win a trip to Florida to compete for $5,000!

Have a business idea floatin' around your head?! Pitch it and you might walk away with a trip to Tampa and a shot at winning an additional $5,000! Students will have 90 seconds to convince the panel, and the audience, that their idea could work. Any current UW Oshkosh, UW Fox Valley, or UW Fond du Lac student from any area of study is welcome to participate in the contest. 

What kinds of ideas are we looking for? Anything! The sky's the limit! Student businesses can vary from a concept that has been recently developed to an operating business in need of capital.

Once the application closes, we'll work with you to craft the perfect pitch!
