Participating students will first pitch their business ideas through Twitter, with a limit of 140 characters, using the hashtag #SMUFSD. The Top 20 ideas will advance to the second round, pitching again with only 30 seconds, rotating between five different judges.

We will then go to Final Pitch, giving the Top Five students one minute to pitch their projects in front of the judges. The Top Three receive funding and coaching.


First place: $2,000

Second place: $1,000

Third place: $750

Winners will also receive additional coaching and support from the SMUEC staff!
