Vanderbilt Flash Pitch Program

UPDATE: The Flash Pitch Competition has been temporarily postponed. Please check back for the rescheduled date.


The Flash Pitch Competition is an innovative program sponsored by the Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization (CTTC) and co-hosted with the Wond'ry. The objective of the Flash Pitch Competition is to provide Vanderbilt students with an opportunity to jump-start their entrepreneurial dreams by presenting their start-up idea to a panel of investors and entrepreneurs for some critical feedback.

The format of the Competition is a 90-second pitch (think, elevator pitch) by student entrepreneurs to the investor/entrepreneur panel. Each flash pitch is judged for the quality of the presentation and, secondly, for its investment potential.

If you have an idea that you think has business potential, please submit your entry by clicking the link below and filling out an application. Once your application is received, you’ll be in the running to make a flash pitch at the event on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 at 5:30pm.


All applications must be submitted by Tuesday, January 16, 2018.
