Watch The Martin J. Whitman School of Management’s sixth annual Orange Tank business pitch competition this weekend, starting October 22, 2020, at 6 p.m. Student and alumni teams will pitch their business venture to a panel of accomplished judges and vie for part of the $40,000 in cash prizes. A grand prize of $25,000 will be awarded to the competition’s top finisher. Monetary awards will be given to the ventures finishing in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in both the student and alumni category. Watch to watch the spirited competition? Register here.
Prizes are thanks to the generosity of Whitman Advisory Council member and lifetime SU Trustee John Couri ’63 (A&S). Student teams must have at least one Whitman School of Management student on the founding team. Alumni teams must have at least one Whitman School of Management alumnus on the founding team. Founding team membership is determined based on timing of membership in the new venture, title in the organization, and significance of ownership stake.
Finalist teams have been selected, and five student teams and five alumni teams will be battling it out in this year’s Orange Tank. Who will win? You’ll have to tune in to find out. The event is part of Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises Week, October 19 through October 23.
