Contest winner pitches horse-therapy business
Psychology major Anna Willenbaker '18’s idea for a therapeutic horse-riding business won the third annual Pitch Your Passion competition for business-minded students at Saint Michael’s College on Sunday, November 5, earning her a $1,000 prize and an invitation to a larger regional competition involving several area colleges. She has a minor in business. The student-run Saint Michael’s College Business Society and the Department of Business Administration and Accounting hosted Sunday’s event -- a multi-round pitch competition with prizes of $1,000, $350 and $150. The competition involves pitching a concept for a service, product, or idea. The winning pitch also gains the opportunity to pitch that competitor’s idea at the 2018 LaunchVT Collegiate, a regionally sponsored competition by the participating Colleges and Universities and Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce.
