An Elevator Pitch Competition for Truman Students
With the financial and professional support of alumni Doug (’94) and Diane (’95) Villhard, Truman State University hosts the annual Bulldog B.I.T.E Elevator Pitch Competition during the spring semester. The competition gives students an opportunity to pitch a for-profit or not-for-profit concept by presenting a concept or idea for a product, service or project.
Judges select six teams to attend a live pitch competition to present their concept to a panel of judges. The top three finalists receive seed money to pursue their ideas.
The competition is open to any Truman student or team of Truman students (up to three members) enrolled during the spring semester. A student or team may submit only one pitch concept for the competition. Participants may pitch a product, service idea, or solution to a problem facing humanity.
