East Lansing, Michigan, United States — Accelerate Michigan is now accepting applications for the 2016 Student Accelerate Michigan Pitch Competition. The competition allows student-led, Michigan-based teams to pitch their business venture idea, meet with investors, and win $20K to put toward their venture. All current student entrepreneurs in Michigan are welcome to apply through the deadline on October 9, 2016.
To apply, applicants must answer a series of questions about their business venture idea and submit a link to a one minute video that describes the key aspects of said idea. All applicants must also follow all competition rules and guidelines:
A panel of judges will review the applications, and the top-ranked teams will compete in the semi-finals at Cobo Center in Detroit on November 3, 2016 during the Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition. Semi-finalists will be asked to use a pitch deck to deliver a four minute pitch describing their business venture idea to a panel of judges.
