'Berg Marketing students take third in annual cross-town pitch contest

For the second time, students in Dr. Salil Khetani’s marketing class, Professional Selling, represented Heidelberg in a pitch contest sponsored by Tiffin University.

Near the end of the fall semester, two of Salil’s students – Kelly Itito and Isaac Wienen – placed third in the contest. Kelly and Isaac pitched their digital marketing agency business called Itito Strategies.

Fourteen teams comprised the competition, including students from Heidelberg, TU and Calvert High School students taking a marketing class for CCP credit.

Salil explained that all teams compete in the first of two rounds, with students having two minutes to provide an elevator pitch of their proposed business in each round. The elevator speeches were judged by a panel from the Tiffin community. The top five teams then proceed to the second round.

Congratulations to Kelly and Isaac on their strong showing and for representing so well Heidelberg on a community stage!
