How to Pitch: The Business Model

Posted: March 23, 2016

How will your new business make money now and in the future? Think through all the points of your model, says Hunter Swisher, a senior plant science major competing in ‪#‎AgSpringboard16‬.
In pitches for the Ag Springboard student business contest — or any pitch to potential investors — be sure to explain your business model and how the business will make money into the future.

(All Ag Springboard videos for the spring 2016 semester were filmed and edited by Taylor Clayton, a student in the College of Communications and communications intern for the E&I Program.)

Remember: Ag Springboard teams must prepare and submit short video pitches of their new business product or service by March 28 for the first round of competition. This is video 4 in our five-video series on Pitching Basics.

Judges will select finalists for live pitching on April 14. Winners of the top $7,500 prize and second-place $2,500 prize will be announced that evening.
