Tuesday’s Pitch event was a huge success! Energy and enthusiasm filled Cook Auditorium as eighteen innovative ideas were pitched in rapid succession. Pitches were limited to 2 minutes or less, leaving time for only the most salient details. Participants were largely undergraduates, as well as Tuck students and Dartmouth staff members. The ideas spanned a broad range of topics including addressing implicit biases, a campus security app, and raising awareness for marine biodiversity through garment design.
Six judges awarded four of the five event prizes; the fifth was decided by audience vote. Glean, a news-browsing chrome extension, took home DALI’s team prize and DEN’s 1st place award. Pitchback, a online tool for perfecting your public speaking skills, won DALI’s individual prize and will become a lab project in the fall of 2017. People's Choice award and DEN’s second place award went to MobileMedic, a first-aid app.
Every term the Pitch is full of insightful ideas and creative solutions, and this term was no exception. Congratulations to all the Pitch winners and participants!
