MIT #HackMed: Barracuda Bowl Startup Pitch Fest

Monday, March 14
9:30AM - 10:30AM

JW Marriott
Brazos Room
110 E 2nd St

After providing an overview of their business, the startup founders will be immersed into the Barracuda Bowl where the panel of judges will interrogate them and poke holes in their business plans. After all the startups have had their fifteen minutes in the bowl, they will assemble on stage, where the audience can play barracudas and unleash their questions on them. At the end of the session, the barracuda panel will decide which founder won the battle of the barracuda bowl and which ones got chewed to pieces.
