Applications for the Cornell EMI Mark Mobius Pitch Competition ‘23 are open and extended until April 12

The Cornell EMI Mark Mobius Pitch Competition invites student entrepreneurs and recent graduates operating startups in emerging markets to network with fellow students, speak with expert mentors and pitch their startups to investors in the emerging markets annually. This competition is for any undergraduates, graduates, or recent alumni (within 3 years of graduation) who are launching or operating early-stage ventures in emerging economies. Maximum two per university or incubator. Finalists will have networking opportunities in New York City, mentorship by fellows and global investors, media exposure, and the opportunity to compete for a cash prize of $10,000.

While applications are due April 12, 2023, teams are encouraged to submit early as early applicants can request office hours to gain feedback on an area of focus each week. Finalists will compete for a cash prize of $10,000 at the EMI Conference on November 3, 2023, at the Cornell Tech Campus in New York City. Each finalist will be awarded USD 1,000 to use for expenses related to pitching at the EMI Conference.
