Fourth edition of the "'Emprèn Pitch" competition, with three surprise trips to be won
The Entrepreneurship Unit of the Employability Service organises a pitch competition, open to all university students, in which each participant has 90 seconds to present their business idea or project. Applications can be sent in until 17 November and the final competition will be held on 12 December.
The final will consist of 13 finalists; three will be awarded a surprise trip
A pitch is an oral presentation of a business concept and is often used in the business world, in which communication skills play a very important role. To participate in the Emprèn Pitch, applicants must be UAB students. Each applicant must record their business idea on a video lasting no more than ninety seconds.
Right after, they must fill out the following application form and attach the video:
Deadline for applications is 17 November at 12 pm.
A professional jury will select the top 10 videos, who will go on to the final stage of the competition. Also participating as finalists will be the three winners of a previous pitch competition held at the Faculty of Communication Studies.
These 13 students selected will participate in the final competition, to be held on 12 December at the UABemprèn hall, located at the Plaça Cívica. Once again, each student will have 90 seconds to perform their pitch, this time in front of a jury and other competitors. The jury will then vote on the three top presentations, and each winner will be awarded a surprise trip by Waynabox.
The factors taken into account for each of the presentations will be the presentation itself, the originality and degree of innovation of the business idea, its potential social impact and its viability. The jury will be made up of one representative of the Waynabox company, one from the Employability Service, one from the Faculty of Economics and Business Studies, and one from the Faculty of Communication Studies.
