Elevator Pitch Competition winners announced

The Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies has announced that Sheree Haslemore and Jennifer Schrankler were awarded the top two prizes in the recent Elevator Pitch Competition. 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 will be sponsoring another Elevator Pitch Competition early in second semester. Watch for details or contact Trevor Hall, director of the Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies, for more information.
