WHAT WE DO

We don't care where you are in your journey. We want to be there for you. Our initiatives cater to students in every stage of entrepreneurship.

1000 PITCHES

Designed to kickstart the academic year by promoting the entrepreneurial spirit, 1000 Pitches is a campus-wide pitch competition consisting of two parts: a four-week long campaign where students pitch their ideas to win a free t-shirt, and a final event where the top ten pitches present in front of a panel of judges and an audience. Students are able to pitch through an online video submission and at our pop-up stands on campus.
