The 6th annual Real Elevator Pitch Competition is open for submissions. Sponsored by Saint Louis University, this contest is open to all college students. Two cash prizes will be awarded to the best business plan pitches.
The Real Elevator Pitch competition takes place on real elevators in the second tallest building in Missouri: One Met Square in downtown St. Louis. Real students deliver real startup pitches to real investors while riding up 40 stories on the building’s elevators.
Submissions are due by Nov. 7, 2017 at 11:59 CST
Saint Louis University staged the first Real Elevator Pitch six years ago and it has been a successful competition ever since.
Startup business pitches can be submitted in two categories: for profit ideas and nonprofit ideas.
To enter the competition, you must submit a 30 second pitch:
1.) Record your video and upload it to YouTube.
2.) Fill out the SUBMISSION FORM
A blue-ribbon panel of judges will select the top 18 that will move on to the Final Round.
The 18 Finalists will be invited to One Met Square building in downtown St. Louis to pitch to 30+ wealthy judges while riding up and down on 12 elevators.
