Causeway Pitch Competition 2018 data-lightbox='featured'

The Melton Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (MCEI) in the Mitchell College of Business at the University of South Alabama hosted the finals of the third annual Causeway Pitch Competition on Wednesday, November 7th at the Fort of Colonial Mobile. The Causeway Pitch Competition is a two stage competition. First, students create a poster to promote their business or social idea. The highest scoring posters are then invited to deliver a 1- to 2- minute elevator pitch on a duck boat in the middle of the Mobile Bay.

Fourteen student teams earned the opportunity to present their ideas live. Students from across campus, including Arts & Sciences, Business, and the Honors College all competed for over $5,500 in total prizes. The MCEI assisted students in preparation for this contest with online tutorials supplemented with extensive office hours and pitch practices. Some of the winners were:

Bailey Duos, 1st Place, Port City Pups

Kaitlin Kelly, 2nd Place, Online Retail Store for Short Women

Brianna Ladnier, 3rd Place, Hold N Fold
