Presented by The Hill Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Paladin Pitch Competition is entering its fifth year at Furman University. This exciting event showcases the innovative ideas of four student finalists who will pitch their new venture ideas to a panel of judges and a diverse audience of students, faculty, alumni and community leaders. A vast variety of ventures have graced the competition stage, from sustainable musical reeds, AI-focused data analytic platforms to custom jewelry.

Students compete to take home the $10,000 Johnny Flynn Paladin Pitch Award to support launching their entrepreneurial venture; second place will take home $2,000 while third receives $1,000. With a focus on creativity and entrepreneurship, the event helps fuel the translation of innovative ideas into action.
