WHAT IS PITCH
An entrepreneurial training program and startup pitch contest. Zuventurez pitch is taught, coached, and judged by startup founders, angel investors, and business professionals. Student and alumni teams validate their business ideas and problem statements by competing against one another to win a $15,000 prize to start their business.

 
 
 

TOPICS COVERED IN PITCH
Our Zuventurez workshops are specifically designed to meet the needs of the Zuventurez PITCH participants. Each workshop will direct its focus towards a specific topic to validate their idea, to find their problem statements, and to build a pitch deck. The eight topics discussed in our workshops:

 
 

  • DISCOVERING YOUR WHY
  • FINDING YOUR PROBLEM AND SOLUTION
  • LEARNING TO TELL A BETTER STORY
  • KNOWING YOUR MARKETPLACE
  • FINDING YOUR CUSTOMERS
  • PRICING YOUR PRODUCT
  • IMPRESSING YOUR INVESTORS
  • REFINING YOUR PITCH DECK
