  • Meet the coordinators and Bay Area judges for the HAAAS Elevate Pitch Competition, a special Summit event where finalists will take home over $25K in cash awards, prizes and mentorship luncheons with leading alumni VCs, entepreneurs and creative executives….Got a few entrepreneurial ideas or inventions?  A non-profit concept or creative works in progress — screenplays, manuscripts, music and more?  Give your ideas a test drive and ENTER them in the Elevate Contest! Hurry, as Monday, September 20th is the entry deadline.

We look forward to great turnout to both events. Please feel free to invite guests and more fellow alums!
