We are excited to announce the finalists for the Elevate Your Pitch competition, sponsored by Schindler Elevator Corporation. The elevator pitch competition presented students with a great opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a jury via video submissions for a chance to win one of three cash prizes. Submissions should be innovative in nature and should try to solve a unique problem.

The jury reviewed all submissions in early June and we are proud to announce the top three finalists who will get a chance to compete at the AIAS Grassroots Leadership Conference for the grand prize. In addition to voting at Grassroots for your favorite video, we will be having Viewer’s Choice Bonus Points! The video with the most YouTube thumbs up will receive 5 votes to their final score and 3 additional votes to the runner up! Make sure to click all the way through to YouTube to cast your vote!

In no particular order, the finalists are:
