The 2012 Grove City College Elevator Pitch Competition is currently open only to Grove City College students.
All students must be in good academic and social standing with GCC and the community. Good standing is defined as a minimum QPA of 2.0.
All Elevator Pitches submitted must be appropriate to the vision and mission of Grove City College and the Entrepreneurship Program. If there is a question of appropriateness, the College will make the determination.
It is free to enter the competition.
An informational meeting will be held on Monday, September 17 at 4:00 pm in HAL 316.
Please register online by midnight on Thursday, September 28, 2012. You must also complete the “Submission Statement”located on the website and either hand deliver (HAL 318L) or email (email@example.com) a .pdf version of the signed form to Mrs. Stillwaggon, by Thursday, September 28, 2012.
The competition is open to students planning to enter the Business Plan Competition as well as other students who wish to enter. The competition is open to students from all majors. For team ventures, all members must be present, and one student will deliver the pitch. If registering as a team, only one student from the team should complete the official “GCC Elevator Pitch Application Form,” but each teammate and his /her contact information should be listed.

- Commercial Enterprise: HAL 308; beginning at 1:00 p.m. (length of competition depends on number of entrants)
An important consideration in any Elevator Pitch Competition is whether or not a student or team should go public with an idea or product. If a participant has what he/she considers a unique idea or patentable product, he/she may want to consider not entering the competition (or protecting vital information) to avoid the possibility of having the idea copied. He/she may wish to consult an attorney who specializes in intellectual property matters.
