Be Part of Austin History...
Come be part of Austin history January 27th, 2019, as 9 kid bosses take the stage and pitch their idea in front of a live audience and panel of celebrity entrepreneur judges for a chance to win prizes and funding.
Students from far and wide were invited to submit their idea and we’ve selected the top three from: 8 and under, 9-13, and 14-18 to take the stage! Just like at “adult” pitch offs our “bosses” will be judged on the problem/need, solution they offer, feasibility, their market advantage, possible revue stream, and delivery.
Just because they are small, doesn't mean they don't have BIG ideas.
