Meet the committee members here

This year’s committee members were carefully selected from a large applicant pool.  The selection was based on their qualifications as entrepreneurs and their skill set. 

The Blue Ocean Student Entrepreneur Pitch Competition is the largest global, virtual pitch competition for high school students that is founded and supported by high school students. Individuals or teams of up to five students can participate.  Pitches should be 3-5 video minutes in length and should use Blue Ocean concepts.  Students and schools can win prize money and get huge exposure through our YouTube channel.  Since the competition is virtual, it is easy, convenient and fun.
