JWiT Pitch Competition
March 4, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
This is Cornell Johnson Women in Technology’s (JWiT) inaugural Idea Pitch Competition. The competition gives aspiring entrepreneurs currently pursuing their MBA the opportunity to learn how to effectively formulate and communicate the value of innovative ideas and turn them into real opportunities.
Each year, more and more women set out on the journey to launch and lead their own technology companies, yet many female business owners still face significant obstacles because of their gender. The goal of JWiT’s Idea Pitch Competition is to encourage and inspire business-savvy women to pursue their dreams of founding startups.
The advantages for students in JWiT’s Idea Pitch competition are:
- Access to unbiased and high quality judges, all of whom support women in entrepreneurship
- Opportunity to receive quality and unbiased feedback from experts
- Ideas will be ready to be presented to possible sources of funding to take it further
- Network with other venture capitalists and entrepreneurs with various complementary skill sets
The competition is open to MBA students at top business schools within the United States. To support the mission of JWiT’s Idea Pitch Competition, each team is required to have one female founder.
