All Day -
Please join other student-led teams from across the State of Michigan to pitch your business venture idea, meet investors from around the country and win money to start your venture! There could be up to $20,000 in cash prizes awarded to winning companies.
You will answer a few questions about your business plus a one (1) minute video link describing the key points of your business. These will be reviewed by a panel of experienced judges. The top teams will progress to the semi-finals at the Detroit Masonic Temple on Thursday, November 16, 2017 during the 8th Annual Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition. If selected as a semi-finalist, you will be asked to deliver a four minute pitch to a panel of investor judges using a pitch deck to describe your business venture. Semi-finalists will be narrowed down to finalists and deliver that same four minute pitch to another panel of investor judges.
