Oregon State Elevator Pitch Competition

The Elevator Pitch Competition is a solo competition where students will have the opportunity to present themselves in an elevator-pitch format to a panel of judges. The panel will choose the best pitches and prizes will be awarded to the top three student presenters.

What is an Elevator Pitch? This is the 30-60 second business description of who you are and why someone would want to hire you. It's called an "Elevator Pitch" because it describes the challenge: "How would you explain your skills and experience if fate placed you in an elevator with the CEO of your dream job and you only had the time it takes to get from the top of the building to the bottom?"

This competition will bring together students from across the college to compete in this 3 round competition which will include

Round 1- 150 individual pitches will be recorded and uploaded for judges to view

Round 2- The top 50 pitches will move forward to be judged by Industry Sales Professionals

Round 3- The top 10 pitches will move into round 3 for a live elevator pitch and Q&A to determine the winners

3rd place will win $100

2nd place will win $150

1st place will win $300

The top 10 student competitors will secure spots on the Oregon State Sales Team and have opportunities to compete in nationwide competitions for the 2021/2022 school year.
