The 7th Annual Pitch George Elevator Competition is now open and accepting applications! Have a business idea? Looking for an opportunity to win start-up capital towards your new venture? Register today to pitch for investment!
Open to undergraduate and graduate students at GW, Pitch George not only provides you with an opportunity to compete against other student entrepreneurs to win cash but also allows you to network and gain feedback on your business concept from entrepreneurs and business professionals. First place teams, both graduate and undergraduate, will win $2,000 each and will automatically advance to the semi-finals of the GW Business Plan Competition in the spring.
This year we are also happy to announce that we will be re-opening our High School track to allow students from all High Schools in DC and surrounding areas to participate! The first place high school team will receive $800 towards their new venture!
