BMR Elevator Pitch Competition

Boilermaker Regional Teams

Purdue FIRST Programs is working on developing media content to promote FIRST and our program around campus and to sponsors. We would like your help! Purdue FIRST will be sponsoring an elevator pitch competition to promote what FIRST means to you and your team and awarding winners at the Boilermaker Regional.

What is an Elevator Pitch?
An elevator pitch is a concise and well practiced description of a business venture (in this case FIRST) that you would deliver if you found yourself in an elevator with a potential sponsor. In 1-2 minutes, the pitch should describe:

  • The FIRST Competition
  • Your market and its size (Who do you reach?)
  • The support your team receives
  • Your leadership, mentors, etc.
  • Your competition: Why you chose FIRST instead of other activities?
  • What makes FIRST unique?

The video should be no more than two minutes in length. Upload the video to
YouTube no later than March 11th, and forward the link to so that we can add it to the Purdue First YouTube
channel. Please include your team name and number. The top videos will receive recognition

at the Boilermaker Regional on March 13-15.

Thank you for your submissions we look forward to seeing them, and good luck!
