Calling all University of Hawaiʻi student entrepreneurs: Do you have a great business startup idea? Share it and you could win $250 at the first ever UH Pitch Party on Wednesday, January 24, 4–6 p.m. at the UH Mānoa Campus Center courtyard. There will be food, a DJ and giveaways, while supplies last.

The UH Pitch Party is sponsored by the Pacific Asian Center for Entrepreneurship at the Shidler College of Business.

The event is free, but participants must pre-register at Pacific Asian Center for Entrepreneurship website by noon on Tuesday, January 23.

This event will also kick off the 18th annual UH Business Plan Competition, sponsored by HEI Charitable Foundation and the Hawaiian Electric Companies.
