At the A. Lorne Weil Startup Pitch Competition, Columbia Business School students competed for the chance to win funding for their business proposals. Students submitted their most creative 90-second video pitches. Then, select finalists were given five minutes to present further details on their plans. 

The annual competition is a student initiative managed and run by the Columbia Entrepreneurs Organization. The competition encourages students to explore entrepreneurship while learning firsthand what goes into the development and presentation of a solid business proposal.
