Monday, April 25, 2016 - Villanova University

Villanova Pitch Day 2016 will feature presentations from Villanova students participating in the seventh annual Villanova Student Entrepreneurship Competition, the Mobile Applications Course, and the Entrepreneurship Minor programs.

Please consider Sponsoring Pitch Day 2016!


Without good judging, Pitch Day will have little impact on the participants and on the culture of entrepreneurship and innovation at Villanova. We encourage you to be a judge so this event can be a transformative opportunity for our students.

Pre-Pitch Day Judging (may be completed without coming to Villanova’s campus)

  • This stage involves reading around ten VSEC Executive Summaries (3-4 pages each), scoring them on specific criteria, and giving overall feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of each idea.
  • The plans will be emailed to you and the reporting of the scores and feedback will be submitted using a reporting form that will be provided.
  • Executive Summaries will be sent to judges by Wednesday, April 6.
  • Results from judges will be required by Wednesday, April 20.

Pitch Day Judging (on campus at Villanova, 12:00pm-6:00pm including lunch and reception)

  • On Pitch Day, Monday, April 25, 2016, the VSEC competitors as well as students in the Entrepreneurship Minor programs and Mobile Applications Course will present on campus.
  • Judges will be assigned to cover one set of presentations that will last no more than 3 hours.

Please contact if you are interested in judging by March 11.
