Pitch Deck Competition
The Cornell Hospitality Pitch Deck Competition is an experiential learning opportunity for student entrepreneurs who are contemplating, starting, or operating an early stage hospitality-based venture, and who are looking to improve their pitching skills, with the potential to earn seed funding for their venture.
No business plan required for this competition.
You just need ten or fewer slides to compete, along with a great hospitality industry idea!
Students register for the competition in early fall and submit their pitch decks in October for review by a team of faculty judges. Four finalists will be selected to present in November to a panel of industry judges. The cash prizes are: winning team, $3,000, second place team, $1,500, and third place, $500.
For complete guidelines and information, review the official rules of the Hospitality Pitch Deck Competition or contact the Pillsbury Institute at firstname.lastname@example.org or 607.255.0179.
