The Paladin Pitch Competition, established in 2020 is entering its 5th year  at Furman University. This exciting event showcases the innovative ideas of four Furman 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.  

There have been a vast variety of ventures to grace the competition stage, from sustainable musical reeds, and AI focused data analytic platforms to custom jewelry and many more. Students compete to take home the $10,000 Johnny Flynn Paladin Pitch Award to support launching their entrepreneurial venture; second place takes home $2,500 while third place receives $1,500. With a focus on creativity and entrepreneurship, the event helps fuel the translation of innovative ideas into action. It is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain valuable experience in presenting their ideas, networking, and building confidence in their entrepreneurial endeavors.
