Kent State University's Blackstone LaunchPad will host an
elevator pitch competition on Oct. 3 from 5:30- 8 p.m. on the
fourth of floor of University Libraries.

Imagine walking into an elevator and finding yourself face-to-face with a venture capitalist or CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Do you have what it takes to pitch your business or professional skills before they reach their stop? Give it a shot during Kent State’s Blackstone LaunchPad elevator pitch competition on Oct. 3 from 5:30-8 p.m. on the fourth of floor of University Libraries. The winner will take home $500. The competition is open to Kent State students, but all are welcome to attend.

Those not competing can network and grab refreshments while prepping at the professional job fair with services available, such as business card printing, LinkedIn profiles, professional etiquette and personal websites.
