Judging A Pitch

NextPitch is excited to partner with Startland Education to to provide a pitch rubric that centers on a design thinking framework.


Channeling empathy and keeping real-world learning at its core, Startland Education brings human-centered design thinking to the classroom in order to create a community that values our youth and inspires them as future change leaders and entrepreneurs.

If interested, educators may provide special judge access to the pitches associated with their program. Judges use a rubric to provide ratings and may also choose to leave public comments under each pitch.


To earn votes, students share their pitch with family, friends, and the world around them.


NextPitch connects innovative youth with backers to fund their goals.
