Elevator Pitch Competition
8:00:00 AM @ Wake Forest University
Each year Wake Forest hosts a unique business plan competition for MBA students. They offer a fun and challenging event that can serve as a natural extension to any internal business plan competition. The event involves a weekend of activities culminating in two opportunities for participants to give a 2-minute elevator pitch to a group of venture capitalists during a 28-floor ride in an actual elevator. The top six teams move into the second round where they make a 30-minute presentation to an expanded panel of venture capitalists. At this point, there are no guarantees that teams will get funding, but teams from previous years have received funding for their ideas. In addition, all teams are given the opportunity to receive individual feedback from participating VC's, guest entrepreneurs, and consultants on their idea, presentation, and business plan. As a bonus, Wake Forest provides participants with $500 for travel expenses, as well as, a free hotel room for two nights and all their meals. Entering a team is easy. Simply go to their website (http://www.mba.wfu.edu/elevator) and complete the online registration by February 28th. The only other thing they require is the executive summary of the team's business plan. The dates for the 2004 competition are March 26-27.
