Pirates Pitch  

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, 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. 

Student teams can range in size from one to five members. At least one member of the team must be an undergraduate or graduate matriculated student who is enrolled full-time or part-time at Seton Hall University.
