Test your skills at one of our three flagship events.
TEXAS CHarity pitch
Texas Charity Pitch, or TCP, is an annual competition where teams of undergraduate students pitch a charity as they would pitch a stock. Students choose a charity and present its causes, finances, management, and effectiveness before a panel of esteemed judges. As the first major competition held by USIT, TCP allows students to build experience in pitching and researching -- all for a good cause. Winning teams will receive a donation to their charity of choice of up to several thousand dollars from our sponsors. The competition was held on October 28, 2017.
Texas stock pitch
The Texas Stock Pitch Competition, or "TSP", is a chance for students who have practiced the art of investment research and presentation to show their skills to a panel of judges comprised of seasoned industry professionals from around the nation, representing investment banks, private equity firms, hedge funds, and more. This year's corporate sponsors will be Point72 Asset Management, a $13B hedge fund, and Vista Equity Partners, a $30B private equity firm. Held once every year, TSP gives the UT student community the chance to develop their investment research and pitching skills by learning from professionals that have made a career out of doing so, not to mention a chance to earn up to five thousand dollars in prize money. This competition was held on February 24, 2018.
