Pitch George Competition

Sat, 4 November, 2023 12:00am

The annual Pitch George competition is one of GW's premier entrepreneurial initiatives organized by the GW Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence (CFEE). This "elevator pitch" competition takes place each fall semester and allows young entrepreneurs from any GW school to present their business ideas, get valuable feedback on the viability of their business concepts, and win up to $10,000 in startup capital. The competition offers a real-world view into entrepreneurship and hands-on preparation for the GW New Venture Competition (ranked #1 in the USA) through the support of GW's academia and network of business executives from the greater Washington, D.C. area.
