SHOWCASING OUR IDEATORS
Idea Pitch Conference
The Idea Pitch Conference is a semesterly event where we showcase our Ideator fellow candidates their entrepreneurial idea and the work they've done to form it throughout this semester. It is a requirement that all student members must complete before being officially inducted into the Fellowship.
At Demo Day, each fellow candidate works at a small booth where they present their entrepreneurial idea to attendees, including UT Austin students, faculty, and guests.
THE INCUBATOR CAPSTONE
Social Impact Pitch Competition
The Social Impact Pitch Competition, hosted by the SELL Fellowship every semester, is UT Austin’s largest social venture pitch competition for students creating their own social business models. This gives us the opportunity to showcase the work our Incubator Fellows have done over the past year as well as connect with others in the space.
This past semester, Incubator Fellow Sam Stafford won the competition and earned $2,000 in non-diluting funding. Another fellow, Yasmie Young, earned $1,000 as the runner-up.
