Fresno State entrepreneurial students compete at national pitch competition

Two Fresno State students had an opportunity to pitch their products in front of an audience of more than 700 people at the 2015 Collegiate Entrepeneuers’ Organization National Conference Nov. 5-7 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Fresno State students Tyler Turk and Aubrey Lim advanced to the final round of the pitch competition, attracting students, faculty, business leaders and entrepreneurs from across the globe.

Turk took third place in the competition for his Date in a Crate presentation, a subscription-box company designed to offer spontaneous and unique date-night ideas. Turk earned third place in the competition.

Lim placed in the top six at the national competition, receiving honorable mention for her pitch on Sports Jerky, a healthy, artisanal jerky made of beef heart for fitness enthusiasts. She won the Fresno State CEO Pitch Competition earlier this year with the same product.
