Be Fearless and Aspen Scholars: A Pitch-It Competition

Based on the popularity of pitch sessions run by organizations such as Startup America Partnership, the Case Foundation Pitch-It Competition will allow a select group of Aspen Scholars to compete in a public forum for grant dollars. In front of a judging panel including Jean Case, Steve Case, Jerry Murdock, and others, the scholars will have five minutes each to convince these judges that they deserve funding. Join us for a chance to hear stories about big bets, experimentation, and failing forward. Grants and prizes will be awarded to the top pitches, as well as the audience favorite!
