Session Title: Pitch-a-Kid: The Art of the Pitch

A panel discussing how pitching to kids can help entrepreneurs refine their pitch while helping kids learn about entrepreneurship. When entrepreneurs pitch to kids, honest and unfiltered questions surface. The answers not only educate the kids but also challenge the pitchers to explain their company using simple, straightforward, and understandable language. By engaging with the entrepreneurs, kids become inspired to problem solve, create, and make ideas reality - just as the entrepreneurs do. The pitches are judged on how well each communicates the value proposition, business model, market validation, team, and vision to the kids. The kids in turn evaluate and score the pitches and learn about different industries, occupations, and careers.
