Do you have a great idea for a business? Is it your dream to work for yourself? Put your idea to the test in the Pitch Competition and compete for more than $1,000 in prize money.

The Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO) at UIW is excited to host the Pitch Competition this Spring. This competition is a chance for aspiring entrepreneurs to learn how to turn their startup dreams into reality. Register your idea for the competition, then work with faculty and business leaders to develop a business model.

Once you have hammered out the details of your pitch, you will present it to a panel of judges from the San Antonio business community on Friday, April 30 on Zoom. Prizes include:

  • $700 - First place
  • $300 - Second place
  • $150 - Third place
