10th Annual Pitch George

Elevator Pitch Competition

 


Thank you to all who participated to make the 2017 Pitch George Elevator Pitch Competition a success.
We look forward to hearing more amazing pitches in 2018!


About the Event

This year over forty graduate and undergraduate teams competed in Pitch George, vying for their share of more than $8,000 in cash prizes. Teams came from all across the GW campus, including submissions from the Elliot School of International Affairs, the GW Law School, the School of Business, Columbian College for Arts and Sciences, and many more!

We would like to say a special thanks to all those who volunteered their time to serve as judges for Pitch George. This competition would not be possible without their keen insights and feedback.

And last but certainly not least, we would like to thank Mr. Antwanye Ford, President and CEO of Enlightened, Inc., for his generous sponsorship of the Pitch George event. We could not have done it without you!

Prizes

Congratulations to the 2017 Pitch George winners! In addition to the cash prizes, 1st place from each track automatically advances to the Semi-Finals of the GW New Venture Competition with over $200,000 in total prizes!
