Pitch George

Elevator Pitch Competition

The annual Pitch George Competition is one of the George Washington University’s premier entrepreneurial initiatives organized by the Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence (CFEE).

"Great business starts with great business ideas!"

The “elevator pitch” competition takes place each fall semester and allows young entrepreneurs (GW undergraduates and graduates) to present their business ideas, get valuable feedback on the viability of their business concepts and win startup capital.

The competition offers networking opportunities with entrepreneurs from the greater DC area as well as hands-on preparation for GW’s New Venture Competition – the top undergraduate and the top graduate winners automatically advance to the semi-finals.
