The Blackstone LaunchPad Global Media Fellows are hosting a “Minute to Win-it” Pitchfest / Ideapalooza on Wednesday, February 20, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, Bird Library.  The event will be a 60 second fast pitch fest designed for students who are just testing out first ideas and aren’t yet ready for prime time business plan competitions.  You don’t need a business plan, or a pitch deck, or a polished pitch.  But you have to be “in it to win it.”  The format is simple:  What is the problem or opportunity you are working on, and what is your idea?  Refreshments will be served, and fun prizes will be awarded for best idea and audience choice. Each entrant will win a free personal consultation on their idea with the Blackstone LaunchPad in Bird Library.  The event is being organized by David J Fox, with a goal of engaging more students thinking of themselves as innovators.  For more info, e-mail him:
