This year’s showcase and pitch competition is slated for 4-6:30 p.m. at the Translational Medical Institute at 2350 Gillette Drive in Fort Collins. In addition to the student presentations, attendees will also hear a keynote from Jennifer Henderson, the founder and CEO of TiLT, a Fort Collins startup that uses a web-based platform aimed at revolutionizing employee leave in the workforce.
Henderson will also be one of the three judges for the student pitch competition. She’ll be joined by Kerry Hicks, the co-chairman of Breakout Investment Partners, and Chris Petersen, the co-founder and CTO of LogRhythm.
They’ll determine the winners of five cash prizes:
- $5,000 for first place.
- $3,000 for second place.
- $1,500 for third place.
- $500 for the People’s Choice Award.
- $1,500 for the CSU Demo Days Game Changer Award.
In addition to presenting their ideas, students will also receive coaching and have the opportunity to network with seasoned entrepreneurs.
“If you are a creative, an innovator or just generally interested in entrepreneurship, you don’t want to miss this,” Roberts said.
