UNO students are competing for over $1000 in cash prizes in this two-round contest. Round one will take place virtually, where students will submit a 90-second video of themselves pitching their unique business idea. All majors are welcome!
There are three idea categories for pitches, each of which will have a fan-favorite winner:
After submitting a video, students will share their pitch via Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter to gather support and votes from their friends. The top-voted pitch in each category will win $100 and will automatically advance to the finals.
After the submission and voting deadline of November 6, 2020, all video pitches will be scored on originality, the nature of the problem, and the viability of the solution. The 9 top-scoring contestants will advance to the final round, along with the fan-favorite in each category.
The Final Round for the 2020 BigIdea! Pitch Contest will be on November 17, 2020, in person (venue pending). In accordance with the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the CDC Guidelines, attendees will be asked to follow strict guidelines and there will be limited seating available for audience members. As a result, the Final Round will be streamed live, where additional audience members may view the finalists' pitch to a live panel of judges.
