Program Options and Features Overview

The Pitchworthy team has been testing and refining program approaches for entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship education, innovation, and project-based learning for over a decade, with a background in experiential education that goes back decades longer. Our standard program phases are here, but there is substantial flexibility in adapting for the needs of different programs, partners, and priorities. Additionally, programs don’t need to include all stages.
