This year Mercy College and Virtual Enterprises International partnered to host The Perfect Pitch, a competition that challenged VEI students to make a convincing and engaging elevator pitch for their virtual business.
After reviewing over 70 video submissions through YouTube and Vimeo, the judges selected the top three video pitches. Pitches were judged by the Dean of Business and distinguished Business faculty from Mercy College on the clarity and effectiveness of the presentation as well as the poise of the presenter.
In addition to winning an Apple iPad, the finalists were invited to Mercy College to interview for a scholarship opportunity.
