Ventures and Values Entrepreneurship Pitch Competition

The annual Ventures and Values Pitch Competition, co-sponosored by GISME and the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative began in 2017 and features student groups formed in ethics courses taught by GISME faculty.

In class, students create their own business ideas and defend them against hypothetical ethical dilemmas.

For the pitch competition, the student groups must convince a panel of judges, consisting of faculty, alumni, and entrepreneurs-in-residence, that their business idea will not only be profitable, but that it will be ethical.
