Friday Entrepreneurship Pitches

Calling all W&M Entrepreneurial Thinkers!

Every Friday | 1:00 pm | Entrepreneurship Center, Miller 3041

If you've spotted a business opportunity or identified a problem worth solving and have a idea you'd like to take to the next level, come by the Entrepreneurship Center to pitch it in front of a panel of judges for a chance to win $100. Participants have 90 seconds to address the following four questions:

  1. What is the opportunity or problem? (this isn't your idea)
  2. What is the size of the opportunity? (this still isn't your idea)
  3. What is currently being done to address this opportunity/problem and why are those solutions not sufficient? (yep...still not your idea)
  4. How might you address this opportunity? (finally! this is your idea!)

You have to hit all four points to be eligible to win.

World Bank Group Youth Summit

When: December 4th-5th, 2017

Where: World Bank in Washington D.C.

The two-day summit will contain plenary sessions to engage youth with thought-leaders in technology and innovation and workshops to provide youth attendees with the opportunity to share ideas and discuss. An important element of the Summit is the Competition which will invite young professionals to submit business or policy level proposals on the theme “Technology and Innovation for Impact.”

This year’s theme focuses on the opportunity rapid technological change presents to make the world more prosperous and inclusive. The event is open for youth ages 18-35 so is applicable for both undergraduate and graduate students and also attracts many young professionals. It would be fantastic to have a number of students from your university register for the event and enter the competition. We can also work with you to arrange a remote watch party as the event will be livestreamed.

Dates: Entries due September 29th; Registration due October 10th
