Pitch@IllinoisTech is a pitch competition hosted at Illinois Institute of Technology throughout the Spring semester. Students will receive the opportunity to form teams and work on a project or idea they are passionate about. The prerequisites are simple: it has to be sustainable and have a positive impact on a specific community. The purpose of this competition is to promote creative thinking, problem-solving skills, and a proactive attitude among the student body.
At the end of the competition, the top student teams will get to pitch to judges from Chicago Organizations, Startups, and Venture Capital firms. The top three teams are chosen by the judges and they get to take home prize money!

We are very thankful to everyone who participated. We were very lucky to have had judges from various startups, entrepreneurial organizations, and venture capitalist firms from around Chicago. Thank you, Tina, Pedro, Lilia, Peter, and Joseph for being here with us!
In addition, we are very grateful for Zori, Nirav, and Diana. Our amazing alumni who agreed to volunteer their time to share their story on a panel about entrepreneurship!
We'd also like to thank Professor Nik Rokop for sponsoring this event and supporting us every step along the way. Thank you for believing in us! Special thanks to the Office of The Provost who sponsored catering for the event as well!
Finally, none of these could've been possible without our amazing team. After a long month and half of working incredibly hard, this amazing event was a truly rewarding experience!
