All businesses start with a cool idea. Before committing to writing a business plan, a pitch and poster competition is the perfect way to get feedback on your new business idea or product.

The Riata Center hosted several FAQs sessions to help answer any questions about the competition, as well as provide feedback and guidance to help prepare for your pitch and poster.
