Tonight, Terry Johnson, a local social entrepreneur, will be speaking about some cool new things he’s working at this month’s ReInvent Abilene. ReInvent Abilene is a free event that features local thought-leaders and people who are working on cool things. They usually provide food and cold beverages, so there’s no reason to not go, really.

Congrats to all ACU Elevator Pitch Competitors!

7 Oct

ACU recently hosted an elevator pitch competition for their students. For those of you who don’t know, an elevator pitch is when you have to quickly describe your company in just a couple minutes (or less). It’s good to have this little spill down so when the time comes and you pass by that investor, you’re ready to blow their mind.

During the competition, all of the elevator pitches were recorded and posted to youtube. Watch them all here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAAD28620530BEF3D
