To help you get ready for the pitch, we are holding a 2-day workshop to take you through the process of refining your idea and creating your short “Business Pitch” presentation.

You get to work directly with PVCC’s faculty and mentors who are versed in starting a business to refine your idea and learn how to create and practice your pitch presentation. Find out how to create strong messaging that is easy to understand yet conveys the value of your idea in a quick and concise manner. 

The workshop and challenge is open to any PVCC student who wants to learn the critical elements of a successful pitch and increase their chances of winning prize money.

The workshop is not required for participation in the Innovation Pitch Challenge Competition but it is highly recommended.
