Pitch and Poster Competition
All businesses start with a cool idea. Before committing to writing a business plan, a pitch and poster competition is the perfect way to get feedback on your new business idea or product. Enter for a chance to win one of three cash prizes!
The Riata Center for Entrepreneurship at Oklahoma State University is proud to announce the 2014 Big Idea Pitch and Poster Competition will be held on Friday, October 17, 2014. The competition will be held in the Student Union Ballroom and French Lounge at the OSU Main Campus in Stillwater, OK. The poster must contain the following criteria:
- Poster must contain the business or product idea, summary of the proposed business idea (the problem, your solution, your “Ask” or what it’s going to take for you to make this into a reality), and student and company name.
- Must be visually attractive (legible, self-explanatory, etc.)
- Posters can be up to 34” x 48” Portrait or Landscape
- 10 finalists will be chosen to present a 90-second pitch to determine the top 3 winners.
The Riata Center will be hosting several FAQs sessions to help answer any questions you may have about the competition, as well as provide feedback and guidance to help you prepare for your pitch and poster. Check back with us soon for the dates and locations!
Applications must be received no later than Friday, 5pm, October 10th. Please see Rules and Guidelines for further details.
