A one minute pitch

Does your idea solve a problem in a unique way? At IdeaStorm, all UI students are invited to share their business idea in 60 seconds with a panel of judges and an audience. The top five ideas will be awarded cash prizes to help take their idea to the next level. IdeaStorm awards $1,500 in cash prizes at each competition.


  • Familiarize yourself with the process of a pitch competition
  • Network with students from across campus
  • Win up to $500 to help bring your idea to life
  • Get connected with the Founders Club and our student business programs


  • Must be a University of Iowa student
  • Have an idea for a new business
  • Have not yet started working on this business - you should be in the beginning idea stage
