Pitch Day 2021

Since 2018, Novus has partnered with companies around Chicagoland to provide high school students with opportunities to pitch their startups to industry practitioners, in competition for a seed investment prize. In line with guidance from public health officials, Novus will host Pitch Day 2021 keynotes, workshops, and pitches remotely, using video conferencing software.

At Pitch Day 2021, Novus will be awarding up to $1,000 in micro investments to top performers in the competition. All participants will receive documentation certifying their participation in Novus Pitch Day 2021.
