High School Students to Pitch Business Ideas

The School of Business and the Community of College Entrepreneurs will host the first-ever Bulldog Pitch Day for high school students from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. April 25.

Six competing finalists from high schools across Missouri will pitch their ideas to four judges and an audience of their peers. Judges include business professors and local business owners. Thirty-five students are anticipated to attend this event and will additionally receive campus tours and an informational presentation about entrepreneurship for students.

The Community of College Entrepreneurs is a Truman organization founded in 2015 to foster innovation on campus. Students give each other feedback on business ideas, share skills and tips about starting a business and create an environment where new ideas can form and grow.

Any questions regarding the event can be directed to Aren Buresh at 319.210.8291.
