Eight Quinnipiac University students, including Marina Hanlon of Mashpee, are among the 100 participants competing in the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization’s 2021 “Becoming Agents of Change” pitch competition.

Over the past month, the participants created an online investor pitch deck that must include a business model, a business solution and a video pitch. From there, 20 semifinalists will be picked to present their ideas at the CEO’s 38th annual global conference and pitch competition from October 28 to 30 in Tampa, Florida.

Marina, a junior entrepreneurship and small business management major, will pitch “Enlightened Eats,” an application for students that promotes healthy eating as conveniently as possible.
