About the event

Virginia Tech students will pitch biomedical commercialization ideas to a “Shark Tank”-style panel of judges at 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1, during the Health Sciences and Technology (HS&T) Hokie Pitch. A reception follows with winners announced a short time later.

The competition will involve graduate students who have worked with real-world mentors, selected intellectual property, and created an entrepreneurial plan to develop and commercialize biomedical discoveries. Viewers can watch the live webcast of the teams making their pitches beginning at 2 p.m. Thursday.

The competition involves five teams of Virginia Tech students in the Translational Biology, Medicine, and Health (TBMH) graduate program. The students will compete for $3,500 in cash prizes. The competition is sponsored by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and the Woods Rogers Vandeventer Black law firm.
