The PPG Elevator Pitch Competition is evolving given the nature of today's social distancing restrictions. One's ability to quickly and efficiently communicate a concept in a virtual environment has recently become important. We believe that this is a skill that must be learned and practiced.
To facilitate the process, we will be holding a virtual elevator pitch competition on the morning of Tuesday, June 2nd. You will "pitch" the importance of your research before judges from industry.
There will be 2 virtual training sessions the week of May 11th, and the competition is open to current graduate students only.
The top 5 winners will receive $750/$500/$250/2 consolation gift cards of $50 respectively.
If this is of interest, join the Millennium Café Zoom meeting (https://psu.zoom.us/j/96533327353) this week to hear about the competition and you can also look for details on the MRI home page. Generous support for this program is provided by The PPG Foundation.
