UPitchNJ’s aim is to highlight the ingenuity and creativity of today’s college entrepreneurs, whom are increasingly launching businesses from their dorm rooms. Each university will send an undergraduate student team that has developed a startup idea, or had launched a startup, to compete for cash prizes and business services. The teams are evaluated on their perceived ability to execute the idea and turn it into a viable, profitable business, and/or venture with significant social value.
UPitchNJ is sponsored by the New Jersey Collegiate Entrepreneurship Consortium, which represents an all-volunteer effort by the entrepreneurship education programs at New Jersey’s four-year colleges and universities.
Event is free and open to the public. Please note: food will not be served at this event.
