DE PERE – St. Norbert College (SNC) senior Brianne DeLain of Appleton took first place in the collegiate “Pitch” competition – similar to the national TV show “Shark Tank” – held at Fox Cities Stadium last month.

The competition was meant to highlight young entrepreneurs and provide them with the resources and support needed for their idea.

“My pitch was a rainwater collection system that would be utilized on recreational vehicles,” DeLain said. “There is a growing number of people in the U.S. who are beginning to live off the grid in nature with their rigs. This system allows them to take longer trips in the great outdoors by providing them with a filtered drinkable water source wherever they are.” 

DeLain won $10,000 plus $15,000 of in-kind services, such as startup financial consulting, marketing, e-commerce support, patent drafting services and prototyping design. 

DeLain competed against other students from SNC, Lawrence University, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

DeLain is a business administration major and a minor in graphic design.
