Spring 2023 NYU Stern Sustainable Business Pitch Competition Info Session
Join the NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business on February 14th from 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST for our Spring 2023 NYU Stern Sustainable Business Pitch Competition Info Session!
In the Spring 2023 NYU Stern Sustainable Business Pitch Competition, students will compete for a $15,000 total prize purse by developing a business pitch for Dollar General to implement retail strategies to expand its range of healthy and sustainable food products offered in its New York State stores that will help to address food insecurity in surrounding (or local) communities. Teams will use background research and financial modeling to demonstrate the business case for diversifying Dollar General's food offerings, proposing specific plans to address operational, marketing, and scaling challenges . Pitches will be assessed on both financial feasibility as well as their ability to address and leverage current policy trends, notably recent municipal bans on dollar stores, and to articulate a vision of a sustainable and future-proof food system.
Organized by the NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business, student teams will be provided with mentorship and resources from current professionals in related fields. Student teams must include 2 to 4 NYU graduate students, at least 50% of whom must be Stern MBA students. Teams can sign up to participate here.
