Horn Entrepreneurship's Spring 2020 Pitch Competition

Watch or pitch an idea in a fun and friendly environment

The University of Delaware’s Horn Entrepreneurship Spring 2020 Pitch Party will be held at the Venture Development Center at 132 E. Delaware Ave, in Newark, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18. Any UD undergraduate student is allowed to pitch and any student, faculty or staff may attend. The event is free, although registration is required to pitch or attend.

Only 20 spots are available to pitch an idea and they are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Undergraduate students from all UD colleges are encouraged to pitch or attend to get a taste of what Horn Entrepreneurship has to offer.

Horn Entrepreneurship’s biannual pitch competitions are designed to encourage students and first-time presenters to sharpen their pitching skills and display their best entrepreneurial ideas in a fun and friendly environment.

Participants are given 90 seconds to pitch their idea to a live audience and answer a few general questions from a panel of entrepreneurial judges. The top three presentations will be awarded a share of the $1,500 prize pool of Venture Development Center prizes and venture-building resources to be used toward the development of their concept.

UD students who plan to pitch or attend must register by March 16 at 11:59 p.m. on March 16. Only UD undergraduates are eligible to pitch. Teams with graduate students can participate but only the undergraduates can pitch. Participants from Summer Founders, NSF I-Corps, Proof of Concept, Hen Hatch semi-finalists, and prior pitch party winners can participate with a brand new idea only.
