The Fall UMass IC MinutePITCH competition allowed for no prototypes or visuals of any kind, and each team was given 60 seconds to give their pitch. Thirty-three teams competed!
The judges prizes were meant to be $1,000, $750, and $500. But at the end of the night, two groups – Green Latrine and Video Conversation – each walked away with $1,000 prizes due to a tie between the judges. Team Above Average Business Solutions received $500. The Audience Choice Prize of $250 went to Radius Apparel.
All of the prize money is donated from the private sector, meaning that no award money comes out of student tuition.
