The University of Michigan-Dearborn hosted Pitch Day on April 2, 2013. The inaugural event encouraged students to share their ideas and help reshape the future of business. More than $5,000 in prizes were awarded at the two competitions -- Personal Pitch and Business Idea Pitch. Students were given the opportunity to present their ideas/concepts to a panel of entrepreneurs and business executives. Support for the program was provided by College of Business Alumnus Thomas Quinlan (BBA '78), the Betty F. Elliott Initiative, and the Michigan Initiative for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
