Pitch an Idea, Mock Pitch

Optional and online, powered by RocketJudge

Pitch an Idea during Mock Pitch is an optional but highly recommended K-12 InVenture Prize event designed to provide student teams preliminary feedback. Students create a short elevator pitch for current Georgia Tech students, faculty/staff, and industry experts to evaluate and provide constructive feedback about the invention design and concept. After the judging period, teachers may expect to receive judges' feedback for each participating team.

Intended as a part of the invention design and iteration process, students do not need a completed project or prototype to participate in Mock Pitch.
