The International Video Pitch Competition promotes innovation and entrepreneurship on a global scale.

Made possible by a partnership between the University of Pecs Simonyi Business and Economic Development Center (Hungary), Ohio University’s Center for Entrepreneurship (USA), University of Botswana (Botswana), Indiana University of Pennsylvania  (USA), Swansea University (Wales), and the University of Szeged, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration (Hungary), the competition gives young entrepreneurs a chance to win cash recognition for their innovation.

Winners can also receive further professional advisory services and access to potential  funders for their venture’s  growth.  Students are invited to submit their ideas in the form of a 3 minute video pitch and a one page business outline.  Submissions are judged by an international panel of investors and business professionals.

The two categories for submission are:

  1. Startups
  2. Existing Small or Medium Enterprises 

One entry will be chosen to receive an additional award for Social Impact.  The award will be given to the pitch with the greatest potential for advancing social welfare.
