Competitors for "Pitch and Catch" and "Angels in the Outfield" Announced


On April 30th, students from across the United States will be in St. Louis to participate in Pitch and Catch, a deck competition put on by the Center For Entrepreneurship. Students will present their ideas to investors, entrepreneurs, and startup founders while standing on the mound of GCS ballpark, home of the Gateway Grizzlies. First place will win $5,000 and the chance to pitch to the Billiken Angels Network, Saint Louis University’s angel investment group.

Congrats to the Students Competing Next Sunday!
