About the event
Starting in early May, 40 teams of BUILD high school students representing Bay Area Public Schools will pitch their innovative business ideas to volunteer judges in hopes of earning a final slot at The BUILDFest Pitch Challenge. Only three teams will make it all the way.
These finalists will compete in front of a panel of VIP judges and around a hundred 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.
