OSU's Best New Idea Pitch Competition

Do you have a great new idea? Tell us about it!

The format for this informal competition is simple: you have 90 seconds to tell us why your idea is awesome.

Audience members are invited to develop an idea during Nita's 6 pm presentation and share it during the pitch competition, or come at 7 pm with a prepared new idea (that you have not pitched before).

Co-presented by InnovationX, the Entrepreneurship Club, and Tourism, Recreation & Adventure Leadership in the College of Forestry.

RSVP Here for the pitch competition
