The final entry deadline of Friday, November 11, for the Innovators' Circle—racing’s first pitch competition—is fast approaching. All materials for existing entries must also be submitted by that date; incomplete entries will not be judged. Finalists will be notified soon after.

This year’s final round which consists of a pitch to a panel of judges in front of Symposium attendees will be held in the morning on Wednesday, December 7.

The first prize of $15,000 is due to the generosity of contest sponsors USTA and BAM Software.

"We're excited to see all the new innovative ideas to improve the industry come in and are looking forward to showcasing the best of them at this year's Symposium” said Vin Narayanan, a co-producer of the event.
