Bob Mark Business Model Pitch Competition

This is a past event.

Thursday, January 19, 2023, 5 pm– 7:30 pm

This is a past event.

Recognizing 15 years of the Bob Mark pitch competition legacy, Husky Innovate collaborators, Pavlis Honors CollegeCollege of Business, and the Office of Innovation and Commercialization, invite Michigan Tech graduate and undergraduate students from across campus disciplines to pitch their business model to a panel of judges for a chance to win cash prizes. 

Our panel of judges represent our innovation and entrepreneurship (I&E) ecosystem.  Their expertise will provide helpful feedback for students to move their ideas forward. 

This legacy event recognizes student entrepreneurial spirit and is a tribute to the late Professor of Practice, Bob Mark, within the College of Business.  Faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the community are invited to attend in-person or virtually.  Refreshments will be served.
