Students Test Their Pitch

Over 40 students, mentors and advisors gathered Jan.29 at the Moxie/ Rady PitchMatch Mixer for networking opportunities and pitches of new ideas. The Moxie Center for Student Entrepreneurship was founded within the Jacobs School of Engineering in 2012 to provide an educational program in entrepreneurship open to all UC San Diego students.

At the PitchMatch Mixer, 15 Startups pitched their ideas to a panel of judges from the business community.  Competitors entered Round 1 with 60-seconds pitches on the general idea of their product or service.  Round 2 selected 5 semi-finalists to discuss customers.  From there, 2 finalists were selected for Round 3 where competition was discussed.

Congratulations to Martyn Gross from "Skylit", a Rady School StartR Accelerator Program participant, for wining yesterday's PitchMatch competition!
