Grove City College student Shelton Brower, of Boyers, is selected as one of the finalists for Elevator Pitch Competition

Grove City College student Shelton Brower, of Boyers, was selected as one of the finalists for Elevator Pitch Competition

The Elevator Pitch Competition provides student entrepreneurs an opportunity to "pitch" their ideas for a new commercial or social enterprise to judges in a two-stage contest. Each student has two minutes — about the time it takes to ride in an elevator with a deep-pocketed investor — to convince the judges that their ideas have merit and potential.

Brower’s pitch in the commercial enterprise category was for an electronic dog collar.

One hundred and fifty-six students from 30 different majors registered for the competition and submitted video pitches for commercial and social enterprises that were evaluated by a team of 69 reviewers in the preliminary round.

Fifteen finalists from eight different majors were selected for the final round in two divisions.
