High School Pitch Competition
Where Big Ideas Win Big
Our 2020 Babson Olympiad has been cancelled this year. Please consider our 2020 Babson Online Summer Study program.
The Babson Olympiad is a virtual high school pitch competition that brings together teams of young entrepreneurs from around the world to battle their venture ideas. As the #1 College for Entrepreneurship, Babson College is proud to host this spring event where young entrepreneurs identify opportunities for innovation, share with peers and industry experts about the value they are capable of adding, and ask for the resources they need to move forward.
The Pitch: 3 Minutes, 3 Slides, 1 Awesome Idea
Your team will have three minutes and three slides to pitch your venture idea. The video pitch should feature your team presenting in coordination with the 3 slides that showcase your venture. For the complete competition criteria, view our Babson Olympiad Pitch Criteria (PDF).
Describe the opportunity or challenge you have explored. How is the solution you have proposed innovative?
Estimate your target market size, identify the competition, and describe your marketing strategy.
Describe the outcomes of your soft launch and how you determined your venture idea is feasible.
