All are invited to attend the University of Utah Entrepreneur Club pitch event and annual showcase on Thursday, April 30 at 5 p.m. in the Spencer Fox Eccles Business Building, room 1110. Attendees are asked to RSVP here. Students who want to pitch an idea for a chance to receive funding can register online here.
So far during the 2014-2015 school year, the Entrepreneur Club has funded 36 businesses for a total of more than $72,000. These businesses cover a wide variety of industries including: medical devices, fashion, toys, social media, electronics, recreational equipment, gardening, home automation, sports and education. Many of these teams will be in the showcase.
“This event is a great opportunity for people who haven’t attended any of our earlier pitch events; they can learn from students who have previously received funding, they can network with professionals, and they can receive money for their own ideas by participating in the Speed Pitch and Get Seeded Pitch events,” said Ryan Ferrin, the 2015-2016 president of the Entrepreneur Club. “Ultimately, this is an excellent opportunity for people to network and develop business ideas.”
