2018 JagStart Competition
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (OVCR) launched the JagStart pitch competition to support students and development of their ideas. By encouraging entrepreneurially oriented students to develop their ideas and teaching them to present them in a persuasive manner, we are developing the next generation of innovators. The competition provides students with a real world forum where they will receive constructive feedback from local experts in the community.

Students who participate will have the opportunity to learn how to:
• Create a compelling idea, for a new product, service, or venture (either commercial or not-for-profit)
• Present an idea to others, clearly and concisely, in a three-minute “elevator” pitch format.
• Capture and retain the attention of possible sponsors, investors, or other potential supporters in our community.

JagStart is open to all students (i.e. undergraduate, graduate, and professional), who are currently enrolled and in good standing, full or part-time, for a degree in any of the Indiana University-Purdue University schools at either the Indianapolis or Columbus campus.

Indianapolis Campus: All workshops will be held in University Library, UL 1126
