TOP DAWG ‘Idea Pitch’ features innovative product, service concepts

Students from all majors at Louisiana Tech have entered their creative and innovative product or service ideas into the TOP DAWG Idea Pitch sponsored by Bulldog Entrepreneurs.

Student teams will share their ideas on Thursday, November 4 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Student Center.  This year’s event features twenty-two teams that will give five-minute pitches about their ideas to see what professional judges think about their concepts.  The student body can visit each team’s booth at any time during the event to vote for their favorite ideas with ‘Bulldog Bucks.’

The top ten winning Idea Pitch teams collect $200 if they compete in the TOP DAWG Business Planning Competition in the spring.  This event offers Idea Pitch winners a chance to win more money and to move one step closer to making their ideas a reality.

Teams are mentored by business professionals and Bulldog Entrepreneurs sponsors helpful business planning seminars in the months before the business planning competition.
