The challenge is simple. Bring an idea to share.  Present a 60-second “pitch” to explain your new business idea:  an amazing new scientific or engineering technology, a service, or a product that will impact lives! No registration is necessary – those pitching will sign in upon arrival.  This “elevator pitch” simulates a chance encounter with an investor on an elevator, so you’ll have just 60 seconds to pitch your idea to a potential investor: no PowerPoint slides are allowed! Don’t have an idea?  Come simply to listen.  The best ideas will be determined by audience vote and will win great prizes:  iPads, Prizes for the best SOCIAL and HEALTHCARE ideas, $$ gift cards for Starbucks, Jimmy John's, Five Guys, Chipotle and much more.
