During GEW

Six student teams from the University of South Carolina will go head-to-head for fame, glory and $50,000 in startup funding and support. Last year we had a standing room only crowd and we're expecting another high energy event. The Live Pitch Finale, shark tank-style, is the culmination of a three month, three round competition dedicated 100% to student entrepreneurs. This head-to-head competition will pit 6 incredible startup teams against each other for cash prizes across three categories: The Maxient Social Impact Prize, The Flour Innovation Prize, and the SCRA Technology Ventures Prize. Teams compete and winners will be awarded checks in real time. In addition, we have added a "crowd favorite" category that ALLOWS YOU TO CHOOSE a winner that night for a $1,000 cash prize. Don't miss this event!
