Join established and aspiring entrepreneurs at the annual Rhode Island Elevator Pitch Contest and earn a chance to win cash prizes. A total of $1,000 will be awarded to top presenters.

Presenters will describe their business ideas in 90 seconds to a panel of expert judges and get immediate feedback. This is a great opportunity to practice your pitch in front of a live audience and receive constructive advice from people who have built successful businesses. 

Here's what an effective pitch should cover:

  • The problem you are trying to solve
  • Your proposed solution
  • How your idea will make money
  • Why you are qualified to implement the solution
