IQ E-Pitch attracts UC entrepreneurs

The event, presented by the UC Center for Entrepreneurship and Commercialization, showcases new ventures from students across the university

Every year, the University of Cincinnati IQ E-Pitch Competition brings together student entrepreneurs, innovators and inventors from all over campus to pitch their start-up concepts to potential investors, in rapid-fire simulations of a classic 60- to 90-second elevator pitch. This year’s competition includes $10,000 in cash prizes, as well as start-up grants to enable winning students to launch their businesses.

The event will be held Wednesday, April 3, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the University of Cincinnati Campus Recreation Center.

All students currently enrolled in UC undergraduate or graduate programs are eligible to enter the competition.

Admission is free for all visitors and participants.
