Pitch Competitions

Win a chance to go to Moonshot House in Hawaii and Pitch to Investors!

Kravis Lab will be hosting 3 pitch competitions throughout the year and winners will be invited to Moonshot House in Oahu, Hawaii from May 19-25, 2019! Each competition will focus on a different issue area and 10 student teams will be invited to Moonshot House Hawaii. Students will be challenged to come up with innovative solutions to those challenges. The top 3 winning teams from each competition will be invited to join us for a weeklong incubator in Hawaii to live under the same roof with and be mentored by multi-award winning social entrepreneurs who are already having impact around the globe. 4th place teams will be WILDCARDS! After all 3 competitions have selected their top teams, 1 of the 3 Wildcard teams from each competition will be invited to Moonshot House to fill the 10th spot.
