Reverse Pitch

Enactus teams have been presenting to partners for over 30 years; in this event, the tables will turn

Corporate partners, community organizations, and non-profits will be given the opportunity to pitch interesting problems to student teams comprised of members from multiple Enactus teams. These cross-university teams will have the chance to collaborate, generate ideas and innovate solutions, as well as propose business models to solve these real-world problems.

Coaching and mentoring will be provided by representatives from local organizations, subject matter experts, and Enactus Sam Walton Fellows. Student teams will have the opportunity to pitch their solution at the end of the competition. Top three teams will be recognized during the 2019 Enactus USA National Exposition.

Who Should Participate?

  • Innovative Enactus students who yearn to practice design-thinking on a real-world problem, collaborate with their peers, and learn from local organization leaders.
  • Not on your team’s competition presentation team? This is a great way to build relationships and stay engaged!
