Perfect Pitch Competition – Gaurav places after presenting his research in 90 seconds

Gaurav Mukherjee participated and won the second position among the UWIN Fellows at the Perfect Pitch competition organized by the Washington Research Foundation funded institutes on Tuesday July 12, 2016

The Perfect Pitch Contest is an opportunity to develop the communication skills needed to explain your research question, the solution you are developing, and the potential impact of the project in a clear, concise, and compelling fashion.  This skill is essential for any career path including academia, industry, and government.  A smart pitch could help you get a job, win funding for a grant, persuade a collaborator to partner with you, or perhaps even fund your startup company.

The Perfect Pitch contest provides participants the opportunity to present a 90-second pitch and one slide related to their research.

Recent UWIN Awardees stand in a line in front of their posters. Gaurav Mukherjee gives his 90 second research pitch to an auditorium filled with people.
