Pirates Pitch is the annual Seton Hall University Venture Fund Competition. Sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, the competition encourages student teams to dream up an idea for a business, or, if a student already has started a business, then an idea to expand that fledgling business. The student teams then pitch that idea to a panel of judges comprised of successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. The winning team will receive $6,000, plus legal, marketing and other business services, to launch or grow its business. The runner-up team will receive $3,500, plus business services. There will also be an “Audience Choice” prize of $500 for the most popular finalist business idea.
