Poster Session & Pitchoffs

The Yale Innovation Summit features both a Biotech and Tech Pitchoff and a Poster Session. Electronic posters will be displayed throughout the event in the outdoor event space at Evans Hall where lunch is served. Investors and industry leaders will be encouraged to circulate and speak to investigators.

All applications to the Poster Session submitted by Fri., April 21 will be automatically considered for either the Biotech or Tech Pitchoff (unless applicant indicates they do not want to be considered).

IMPORTANT DATES TO HOLD:  Applicants with a genuine interest in starting a new venture that are interested in competing in the pitch contest MUST be able to attend the internal pitchoff for finalist selection on either Tuesday, April 25th (biotech) or Thursday, April 27th (tech and med device).  Applicants will be presenting their 5-minute pitch to a panel of judges made up of local investors who will provide feedback and select the top 8 teams for each track to compete on May 10th.


*Please note: the application requires a slide pitch deck (5-8 slides). This pitch deck will act as your electronic poster for the event.  More details can be found on the application.
