The Big Pitch

The Big Pitch is a new, district-wide business pitch competition that connects entrepreneurial efforts throughout all Maricopa County Community Colleges. This program was developed by the Center for Entrepreneurial Innovation (CEI) to give students the knowledge and resources necessary to launch their own student-lead business.

Student entrepreneurs who have been nominated to attend CEI’s week-long business accelerator will have the opportunity to pitch their business idea at the end of the week.

The winner of The Big Pitch will receive funding, coaching, and business services to help them launch their business!
