Kabara Institute announces elevator pitch winners

The Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies announced its recent Elevator Pitch Competition winners as Joe Richards (philosophy and marketing major), Becca Sandager (electronic publishing major) and Brian Dillon (accounting major).

Contestants created an idea for a business or an event and had 90 seconds (the length of an average elevator ride) to convince a panel of judges that the idea was a worthwhile investment.

Judges considered the feasibility and creativity of the idea and the enthusiasm and professionalism of the presentation when awarding the prizes.

The Kabara Institute is currently presenting a series of three workshops to help students create business plans. The annual Business Plan Competition will be held in March. Watch for details!
