USB Lion’s Den 2020: Pitch your business idea for your chance to win R50 000

 

Your business idea could change the way we live forever. That’s why we are inviting you to pitch your idea to us in the Lion’s Den as part of this year’s In-Week.

At Lion’s Den 2020, you get the chance to pitch your current or new business idea to a panel of seasoned investors – our Lions. The pitching segment at the event provides an invaluable opportunity to learn about the structure of a pitch and what investors look for.

Our accomplished Lions will assess the potential of your idea against other entrepreneurs on their business journeys. You will also receive pitch training as you progress through the competition, and may even acquire a high-profile business investment after presenting your idea to the panel.

If your entrepreneurial idea conquers all and emerges victorious, you will take home R50 000, plus your share of over R100 000 worth of prizes, including entry into the Virtual International Study Module on Entrepreneurship, run by the ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain.

How to enter:

Send your 1-minute pitch video (mov or mp4) along with the completed entry form to careers@usb.ac.za by no later than 28 October 2020.

Please note that only University of Stellenbosch Business School and Stellenbosch University-affiliated students and alumni are eligible to participate.

How will your idea fare at this year’s Lion’s Den?
