Do you have a great idea for a startup? Sure you do, and we want to hear about it. The Columbia Entrepreneurship Club (CEC) of Chicago is hosting a free Pitch to the Columbia University Community event on March 8 from 6-8pm. Participants have an opportunity to take the stage for a 5 minute original business idea pitch followed by 10 minutes of Q&A from the community. We invite small business owners, potential investors, students, business and community leaders to participate/pitch and give feedback to their fellow alumni! All participants receive the space to connect with the CEC community, grow their idea, and be part of the magic that is starting a business. Winners will be recognized.
