UF to host SEC Student Pitch Competition
The University of Florida will host the first-ever on-campus SEC Student Pitch Competition on November 13, 2017.
The competition will bring together the top student entrepreneurship team from each SEC university to “pitch” their innovative product ideas to a panel of entrepreneur and investor judges comprised of established business leaders including SEC alumni.
The student teams will present to the judges throughout the day. The top three teams will make their final presentations at the Evans Champions Club, where one team will be crowned the title of 2017 SEC Student Pitch Competition champion.
The competition is led by the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering’s Engineering Innovation Institute and the Warrington College of Business’ Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center.
Engineering student startup and winner of the 2017 Big Idea Gator Business Plan Competition, Band.it, will represent the University of Florida.
