Deborah F. Spake, Dean
The College of Business Administration's Center for Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation will present the second annual CEBIpitch competition on Thursday, April 19. During this event, seven student-run companies will compete for $30,000 in cash prizes.

A panel of seven judges - all CEOs or Presidents of companies - will provide invaluable feedback to the finalists on their pitches and select the winners of the competition. 

We hope you will join us in watching this dynamic event via the live stream as the College proudly showcases some of its top entrepreneurial talent. Details on the live stream will be sent closer to the event. 

I invite you to read more about our talented finalists and notable judges below.
