Entrepreneur Quest Student Accelerator Pitch Day

March 19 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Sign up today for the first-ever EQ Student Accelerator Pitch Day “Shark Tank” where student startups compete for up to $30k.

The Entrepreneur Quest Student Accelerator is backed by an investment from the UM System and this event will feature the 11 UMSL student startups. Three finalists will be awarded $15,000, $10,000 or $5,000. Then, all 12 campus finalists will meet in April and compete for another $15,000, $10,000 or $5,000. The cohort companies will pitch their ventures to a panel of judges and the audience followed by a trade show with food and networking.

If you are a potential customer, investor, supporter or someone who’s passionate about entrepreneurship, register for the event now and take a look at why UMSL will become the first choice for entrepreneurially minded students!
