Elevator Pitch Competition

ATTENTION E-FESTERS!  Please read this important announcement about ASME E-Fests® in 2021

We encourage students, competitors, and faculty members to take advantage of the learning experiences provided by both our competitions and other digital offerings throughout the year.  Questions may be directed to efests@asme.org and a digital calendar is posted on https://www.asme.org/conferences-events/events (sort by audience type students/early career engineer) with lots of information.

All ASME conferences, meetings and events scheduled through December 2021 are being planned as virtual only, enabling everyone to enjoy the full benefits of participation via our virtual event solutions with no physical presence required. ASME will not have any physical or in-person events during this time but will continue to deliver the insights and expertise that our community depends upon.  For more information about ASME’s virtual approach to events and meetings, visit https://www.asme.org/anywhere.

What is the Elevator Pitch Competition & Prizes

An elevator pitch of 90 seconds or less is intended to “sell” your ideas and skillset to a potential employer, decision maker, or influencer. You only need to provide enough details during the presentation to entice your audience to meet with you again for a more detailed conversation. In other words, you want to compel the audience to bring you back for a further conversation.

Do you want to show off your speaking skills and/or power of persuasion?  Do you want to introduce an idea succinctly?  If yes, then show us your imagination and join us for the ASME Elevator Pitch Competition.

Prizes:

1st Place - $250.00
2nd Place - $150.00
3rd Place - $75.00
