IDEA Pitch Night


You are cordially invited  to Marist High School’s

4th Annual Pitch Night

Featuring students enrolled in IDEA

(Innovative Design for Entrepreneurial Applications)


Wednesday, April 25


RedHawk Theater

Please join us for the presentation and refreshments.

Senior and junior students enrolled in this course have created and fully developed their own product or service. Student teams worked through the process of ideation, market research, and business plan development. They have learned about how to create a product that solves a problem, customer input/data usage, competitive considerations, financial modeling, marketing and operational execution. This is a hands-on course created to allow students to imagine, design, construct, market, and refine their own business ventures. Ten teams presented their company in an initial round of evaluation, and five advanced to this final event. Students will pitch their companies to potential investors at this event as the culmination of their coursework.
