The first event of its kind, UPitchNJ is a new and innovative statewide collegiate business model competition to be held at Rutgers Business School on the Livingston Campus. New Jersey’s college students, faculty, alumni, friends and the public are all invited.
The competition is sponsored by the New Jersey Collegiate Entrepreneurship Consortium, which represents the entrepreneurship education programs at New Jersey’s four-year colleges and universities. Twelve universities will compete in the inaugural competition: Drew University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Monmouth University, Montclair State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Rider University, Rutgers University, Seton Hall University, St. Peter’s University, Stevens Institute of Technology and William Paterson University.
Judging the students’ pitches are: astronaut and serial entrepreneur Greg Olsen;, Caren Franzini, formerly with the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, Betty Manetta of Argent Associates; Anthony Frasier of The Phat Startup; and Marty Johnson of Isles, Inc. Each university will send a student team that has developed a startup idea to compete for cash prizes and business services.
