Students get ready for 2015 Elliott Pitch Day!

Students across campus here at U of M-Dearborn have crafted their ideas in anticipation of the upcoming Elliott Initiative Pitch Day.

Some students who will be pitching their businesses on Thursday April 2nd at Pitch Day were a part of the Design Change competition and were tasked to develop business solutions and ideas that address regional issues, specifically issues related to mobility and food access. Other students will show up on April 2nd with business ideas that span a wide range of industries and fill other market needs. 

In total, there were 17 ideas submitted by students for online voting begining March 14th and ending on March 26th. These ideas are available for anyone and everyone to vote on through social media. To see what kinds of ideas these students have come up with visit www.umdilabs.com/designchange/ideas and cast your vote!
