The Elevator Pitch Contest (EPC) was founded by Sight and Life and provides a platform for students to present their innovation in nutrition to a distinguished team of experts, potential investors, and the nutrition science community. It is an interactive approach whereby an entrepreneur must boil down their concept into a persuasive pitch that will spark interest from potential financiers and is a critical part of the entrepreneurial process. As competition for research and investment funds increases, young scientists need to effectively articulate their ideas and do so in a manner that is persuasive and precise.
The current edition of the Elevator Pitch Contest (EPC) seeks applications for Climate Smart Innovations for Better Nutrition.
Seven selected finalists will win an all expenses paid trip to Bangkok where they present their novel ideas on March 25, 2020 during the Micronutrient Forum Global Conference.
All students, young professionals and entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply.
You can apply individually or as a team.
Seven selected finalists will win a round trip and accommodation to Bangkok to present their idea.
Each finalist will receive valuable mentoring throughout the contest and one winner will receive a cash award of USD 5,000.
