About the event
Starting in early May through June 2023, there will be a BUILDFest in each BUILD region: Boston, California, Metro D.C, Pittsburgh, and NYC. More than 65 teams of BUILD high school students across those regions will pitch their innovative business ideas to volunteer judges in hopes of earning a final slot at The BUILDFest Pitch Challenge.
These finalists will compete in front of a panel of VIP judges and hundreds of BUILD community members for cash prizes and start-up funds. This event will also feature a reception and Student Business Expo where guests will have the opportunity to meet BUILD’s student entrepreneurs and purchase their unique products. The event will be followed by a cocktail reception.
