    Ten Candidates. One $500 Grand Prize.

    The 2015 Perfect Pitch Competition at Start Small Think Big.

    The 2015 Goldman Sachs Community TeamWorks Perfect Pitch Competition at Start Small Think Big is an exciting opportunity for up to 10 contestants to share your 4-minute pitch, receive constructive feedback to perfect it, and compete to win a GRAND PRIZE OF $500! The judging panel consists of volunteers from Goldman Sachs. After making an initial pitch and receiving constructive feedback from the judges, a “speed-dating” round will follow for judges to offer additional feedback. Then, you will be given a final chance to pitch for official judging.

    The Perfect Pitch Competition is limited to participants who want to pitch an existing business. That means that in order to compete, you must pitch a business that has enjoyed at least some sales (not a new business idea). While we anticipate a great deal of interest, only 10 participants will be selected to take part. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until April 10, 2015 at 5:00pm. (So the sooner you apply, the better your chance of being accepted!)

    Application Deadline: April 10 (5:00pm) (Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until April 10.)
    Perfect Pitch Competition: April 24 (9:30am - 3:30pm)
