Every year students create a 30-second pitch that encompasses the problem/need that led to their individual business, their unique selling proposition and a call to action. Students record their pitch and submit it to a panel of judges in the National CEO Pitch Competition. Luke Therrien placed in the top 5% of over 260 entrants and received a $100 cash prize plus many entrepreneurial resources to grow his business. Mark your calendar for the Student Business Expo on May 25th from 4-6PM at the Buffalo Civic Center to hear the student pitches in person!

Submissions for the competition were reviewed by a community of over 70 CEO stakeholders from across the country comprised of CEO board members, CEO Alumni, local business owners, and mentors.

The scores that the pitches received from these individuals helped rank the top 30 pitches.

The final winners were then selected from these top 30 by a panel of three high-level judges who have seen incredible success in their own entrepreneurial endeavors: Wilbur You, Founder & CEO of YouTech, Joan Pacetti, CEO of The Cookie Dough Cafe, and Dan Chancellor, Founder & CEO of So ILL.

The top pitches were announced on a live webinar on April 13th, 2022, during which these high-level judges awarded the winners and provided comments and expert advice to students on pursuing their entrepreneurial path forward.
