Horn Entrepreneurship

E-Club and Horn Entrepreneurship Present the 2023 Spring Pitch Party


Earn Money for Pitching Your Startup Idea!

Do you have a cool idea for a product or service?  Live at the Venture Development Center on April 12 from 6-7:30 pm, Horn Entrepreneurship and E-Club’s annual Spring Pitch Party is the perfect place to share your ideas, practice pitching to a panel of young entrepreneurial alumni judges and audience of peers, and receive feedback on your concept and presentation. Pitch parties are meant for those new to pitching an idea, so the environment is encouraging, casual and low-stress, making it a great way to get involved with the Horn Entrepreneurship community! The event also features $500 in cash prizes, topical awards, and $20 gift cards for every person who pitches!


If you don’t want to pitch, that’s okay too! You can register as a spectator to enjoy watching other students pitch and cheer them on. Pitch party is open to all UD undergraduate students and is free of charge for both pitchers and spectators, but there are only 20 slots available to pitch.
