Rocket Pitch Wednesdays

Calling all W&M Entrepreneurial Thinkers,

If you’ve spotted a business opportunity or identified a problem worth solving and have a idea you’d like to take to the next level, come by the Entrepreneurship Center to pitch it in front of a panel of judges for a chance to win $100.

Rocket Pitch Wednesdays happen every Wednesday at 2:00pm and are an opportunity to take an action step with your idea, get feedback, meet other W&M entrepreneurial thinkers…and win some cash!

Participants have 90 seconds to address the following four questions:

  1. What is the opportunity or problem? (this isn’t your idea)
  2. What is the size of the opportunity? (this still isn’t your idea)
  3. What is currently being done to address this opportunity/problem and why are those solutions not sufficient? (yep…still not your idea)
  4. How might you address this opportunity? (finally! this is your idea!)

You have to hit all four points to be eligible win.

All students are welcome!
