Description

The Big Pitch is a competition designed by the enterprise team at Swansea University to raise awareness of Entrepreneurship and develop entrepreneurial skills.

Whether students have a business idea or feel that they have these Entrepreneurial traits, They are able to pitch their idea or themselves to a panel of esteemed Judges.

What are these Entrepreneurial Skills:

creativity, innovation, resilience, self awareness, self management, problem solving, analytical thinking, leadership, team work and communication = highly valued by todays employers
