    […] The Pitch, according to Neukom Digital Arts Leadership and Innovation Lab executive director Lorie Loeb, is an event that “provides a place where students, faculty and staff can pitch their big ideas” before a live audience and panel of judges. The participants, 20 groups in total, have just two minutes each to present their innovations before the panel selects three winners. The audience also chooses a fourth (credit linda). Loeb says she looks for ideas that “could make an impact.” She said she is impressed by the increasingly strong quality of the pitches, as well as the huge diversity in the types of ideas. The event will continue this term, with the final pitches heard on May 28 at 7 p.m. in Loew Auditorium. […]

    To whom it concerns,

    I am trying to sign up for “The Pitch” but it is not on the website (supposed to go live at noon)… am I in the right area (“The Pitch” area) or is there a specialized link I should have?
