Each year, the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center spotlights purpose-driven business ideas that focus on doing good rather than the bottom line. Held at 1871, Chicago's tech business incubator, the annual Purpose Pitch Competition invites DePaul alumni and students to pitch their purpose-driven ideas in front of the DePaul community, judges and 1871 members.
Three student teams and three alumni teams spend five minutes pitching their ideas, which are judged on their strength of purpose and business model viability. Finalists split $25,000 in award money, with first-place finalists going home with the highest amount.
