Illuminate Business Business Pitch Competition


Illuminate Business will be hosting a Shark Tank Pitch Competition in October for anyone interested in the world of business! Competitors will have the opportunity to compete individually or with a team to come up with a business idea and pitch it to a panel of judges. The judge panel will not only include Illuminate Business executive directors, but it will also include business professionals and undergraduate business students.


The form to enter the competition will close on October 22, 2022. On the week of October 23, you will select a time slot to pitch your business idea in front of our judges over Zoom. 


This competition is completely free of charge. The pitch, workshop, and awards ceremony will all take place virtually.


Why should you compete?

  1. You’ll have the chance to win a competition at a prestigious organization. If you win, this will be an amazing addition to your resume!

  2. You’ll be able to not only develop entrepreneurship skills, but also learn more about marketing and communication

  3. This is completely free, and the benefits are too good to pass up! You will get feedback from qualified judges as well as amazing networking and skill building opportunities!


The Pitch


To effectively pitch your business idea, your pitch should include the following:

  • The problem you want to solve or demand you want to meet

  • Your target audience

  • The solution your business idea provides or why people need your product or business

  • Business model

  • Marketing strategy

  • Advantage over competitors


Your pitch should be about 5 to 10 minutes long, and the judges may ask you questions on your business model or marketing strategy. 


For more help on your pitch, we will host a workshop on October 8th!
