Nope! We accept pitches from any major. In fact, we value diversity of thought and encourage students from non-conventional majors (aka not Biz Econ, CS, or others) to try and pitch your idea!
Although a compelling idea for a startup or a business will most likely be selected for best weekly pitches and the top ten pitches, you can pitch any idea for the free shirt. We appreciate your initiative to get out of your comfort zone and put your idea out there!
A pitch is when you state your idea and convince your audience that your idea is amazing. People get creative with their pitches, so there is no exact standard. We heard pitches about recyclable clothes, reworked concert venues, escalators to the moon – the sky's the limit!
You can find us on Bruinwalk during the weekdays - we will be posting in our event page every time we set up, so keep an eye out for that! You can also submit your video through our website here or send your video to our Facebook page.
Unfortunately, you can only get the shirt after you pitch. The good news is, the pitch is only 30 seconds, so it's super short and you can literally pitch anything you want! A lot of people come up with ideas on the spot, and we love them.
