THE PITCH

Each semester Beyond sponsors a ‘Shark Tank’ style event that invites students to pitch their business idea in front of a panel of judges to win cash prizes. Your presentation can range from a simple concept to a business that is already generating revenue. Your demonstration should last 5 minutes and must include a market/customer analysis, your value proposition, roadmap for growth and a request for investment dollars.

CONVERSATIONS ON INNOVATION

Every semester we invite special guests to share their experiences with innovation and entrepreneurship. These virtual sessions are a mix of interview, Q&A and conversation styles. The way you participate is entirely up to you. Will you engage our guests with a series of rapid-fire questions? Awesome. Would you rather listen-in, camera off while you sip your coffee? Great. However you join in you will be sure to come away with a few nuggets of wisdom.
