Do you have an idea for a new business or product? Participate in a Hofstra-Digital Remedy Lion's Den –a shark-tank style pitch competition where students vie for prizes by making their best two-minute 'elevator pitch' to a panel of judges. Current Hofstra students from any school/year/major are eligible to pitch, as well as graduates from the 19-20 academic year and accepted students. The Fall 2020 event will be held via zoom. Students who are pitching should RSVP on the event calendar, and then you will receive all of the zoom and other logistical information.

The next Hofstra-Digital Remedy Lion’s Den has $1,000 worth of total cash prizes and will be held on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 from 7- 9 p.m.  Students are strongly encouraged to prepare slides using the format posted on this website and share their screen when they give their pitch.  If you would like mentorship or pitch preparation, please email Sharon Goldsmith at Sharon.n.Goldsmith@Hofstra.edu.
