Global Conference 2014

In this Milken Institute-Kairos Society collaboration, student entrepreneurs pitch their company concepts to a panel of high-profile judges for evaluation and guidance in a fast-paced, high-energy, pressure-filled theater. Presentations will be analyzed on their growth potential, financial strategy, impact and onstage performance. Our judges will share business insights to begin the session and offer their critiques after each presentation. The audience will also join in and vote on each pitch. Though only one entrepreneur will be deemed the winner, all participants will benefit from the experience.
