At Marietta College, we celebrate entrepreneurs as those who identify problems and develop solutions. Through PioPitch and its one-hour interactive sessions, we connect students, entrepreneurs and Mid-Ohio Valley business and community leaders in an effort to build a bridge between theory and practice and turn challenges into opportunities.
Each PioPitch session functions similar to a large focus group, with two presenters per session. Each presenter is on stage for 30 minutes, providing an overview of his/her organization/idea for 5-10 minutes, followed by an introduction of a current challenge or “problem.” The remainder of each speaker’s time is devoted to feedback from and dialogue with the audience.
