What is the Frost Pitch Challenge?

The Frost Pitch Challenge is a business plan competition for all Centenary students. Qualifying participants must submit an application and participate in workshops; our Top 5 finalists are selected to make their final business pitches to a panel of judges, comprised of local business and educational leaders. The winning team will receive $3,000; the teams placing second and third will receive $1,000 and $500, respectively
