For the sixth year in a row, inspiring young innovators who are building promising ventures will come together for a friendly pitchoff competition before a panel of judges at the NYU-Yale Pitchoff.
Join us for beer, good conversation and a battle to see which team can dazzle the audience, excite the judges and take home the grand prize & of course, bragging rights!
NYU and Yale competitors will be announced soon! All six teams are currently participating in a summer accelerator, either Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale’s Summer Fellowship or NYU Summer Launchpad.

The program is run by the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute.
