Fly Pitch Competition

Fly! Mocs Business Pitch Competition is our spring pitch competition where a good idea and a strong pitch can earn you some cash and start-up resources to move your business forward.

We're looking for new venture ideas from across UTC. Students in any major at either the undergraduate or graduate level are welcome to apply. You don't have to have all the details worked out, but you do need to prove that there is a market for your product or service, and that you are the right person or team to move this new venture forward.

Prizes are $2,000 for First Place and $1,000 for Second Place. Plus, each winner will receive free registration for a Co.Starters workshop and free mentoring from local legal, banking, digital marketing, and accounting firms.

Each entrant who makes it to the Live Pitch, but does not win first or second place, will receive $50 in Scrappy Cash on their Mocs Card.

This event is sponsored by the Downtown Council of the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce and EPB.
