Students, wanna be the next Chris Gray?

Here’s one way to polish your pitching skills. Philadelphia is hosting its first region-wide business plan competition for students.

It’s an effort to unite — and celebrate — all the student entrepreneurship activity happening around town. And there’s $15,000 up for grabs.

The final pitch competition will happen in February, with a practice pitch event during November’s Delaware Innovation Week, which is full disclosure, organized by Technical.ly.

Apply by Dec. 15

The competition is backed by a $23,500 grant from the city’s StartUp PHL program and organized by Drexel’s Chuck Sacco with Campus Philly.
