Startup City Scholars Seed Pitches Event
Tuesday, August 31, 5:00-6:30pm via Zoom

Why you should attend this fun, informal event:

  • Learn about the Startup City Scholars Program & hear from previous participants

  • Each team must include at least one University of Chicago student, so this event will give you a chance to meet other students and find teammates, whether from UChicago or UIUC

  • If you want to pitch, you can compete for cash prizes (from a pool of $5,000) at this event!

  • If you just want to attend, you'll be entered for a chance to win one of several gift cards we're giving away!

  • NOTE: You don't have to have your own startup idea--you can join an existing team and share your skills.
