WiSys Quick Pitch The optional WiSys Technology Foundation ‘Quick Pitch’ competition is a chance for students to showcase their creative and entrepreneurial spirit by presenting their research findings and/or innovative ideas through a short ‘quick pitch’ to a panel of judges. Students will be encouraged to consider the impact of the research they are currently undertaking or other innovative ideas they may have and how such ideas or research findings could ultimately benefit the local economy or society. Students will be competing for a cash prize and the opportunity to have their research and/or innovative idea showcased at WiSys’ annual WSTS (Wisconsin Science & Technology Symposium), being held at UW-Parkside on July 30-31, 2018. The competition will be held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on April 26, 2018. If you are interested, please check the appropriate box on the Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Activity submission form.
