Born from the RISE Week concept, RISE University Day + Campus Fast Pitch is a free one-day un-conference for university entrepreneurs of all types and stages, providing a forum where students can exchange ideas that inspire the entrepreneurial spirit. Bringing RISE to the university setting allows participants to connect with other undergraduate and graduate students who are also balancing classes and entrepreneurship. Participants will connect with entrepreneurs from multiple industries and backgrounds, along with leaders from universities, non-profits, and government.

The day will include with the RISE Campus Fast Pitch Competition and Networking Event, where 10 early-stage entrepreneurs will have 60 seconds to showcase their business or new venture idea to a panel of judges and a wide array of conference attendees. The winner of the Campus Fast Pitch will receive $500 cash.

Next RISE University Day TBA.
