RISE University Conference

Sat, March 5, 2011 | TBD (UT-Austin)

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Born from the RISE Week concept, RISE University Day + Campus Fast Pitch is a free one-day conference for university entrepreneurs of all types and stages, providing a forum where students can exchange ideas that inspire the entrepreneurial spirit. Bringing RISE to the university setting allows participants to connect with other undergraduate and graduate students who are also balancing classes and entrepreneurship. Participants will connect with entrepreneurs from multiple industries and backgrounds, along with leaders from universities, non-profits, neighborhoods and government.

The day will conclude with the RISE Campus Fast Pitch Competition and Networking Event, where 10 early-stage entrepreneurs will have 60 seconds to showcase their business to a panel of judges and a wide array of conference attendees. Interested students can download the RISE U Fast Pitch application and submit to:
