Six Students Advance to Bulldog B.I.T.E. Finals

Alumni Doug (’94) and Diane (’95) Villhard present checks to winners of the 2019 Bulldog B.I.T.E Pitch Competition.

The finals for this year’s Bulldog B.I.T.E. Pitch Competition will be streamed on Facebook live at 4 p.m. April 9.

This year, 24 students or teams submitted projects for the first round of the competition. Judges reviewed and scored submissions and the top six entries were advanced to the finals. Finalists include: Mitchell Kronsbein, Esther Lee, Mackenzie Miller, Victor Wei, Brandon Winston and Logan Yardley.

In the finals, each contestant will have two minutes to share their pitch and then four minutes to answer the judges’ questions. After scoring is completed, the top three finalists will receive awards. The top-scoring pitch will receive a $3,000 prize, while second and third will receive $2,000 and $1,000 respectively.

The competition was created through the financial support and vision of alumni Doug (’94) and Diane (’95) Villhard. Now in its sixth year, the Bulldog B.I.T.E. Pitch Competition allows Truman students to present a concept or idea for a product, service or project to a group of alumni judges.
