PIVOT 2023

This year marks a return to the in-person competition format for PIVOT! With the hopes of providing local competitors with a world-class competition experience, PIVOT has adopted a 5 hour case structure to inspire the business and technology leaders of tomorrow. In addition, we brought back our networking event, fireside chat, and sponsor-led workshops. We are still committed to providing all PIVOT competitors and stakeholders with a challenging, but rewarding competition weekend in our upcoming 2023 event!
