BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Louisiana State University will host the seventh Southeastern Conference Student Pitch Competition, as student entrepreneurs deliver their best presentations to a panel of judges on October 2-3.

Led by LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business, SEC teams will showcase their ideas for groundbreaking products or services to the judges panel, which includes several SEC alumni, who work primarily in the business sector.

The event includes two preliminary rounds of pitches, and judges will select three teams for the final round, which will be livestreamed on the College of Business’ YouTube channel. The top three finishing teams receive prizes and awards.
