The School of Business hosts several competitions throughout the academic year to provide Ithaca College students the opportunity to nurture and develop their creative concepts, gain real world experience, interact with entrepreneurs, local businesses, and engaged alumni. All this in an environment where they can work on turning their ideas into viable businesses.
One of the great community aspects of the entrepreneurial activity at Ithaca College is how warmly the local entrepreneurs have embraced our students. Countless number of instances our local entrepreneurs have helped students via mentoring, reviewing pitches, providing industry insight, giving technical guidance, etc. The sustainability of these competitions are because of them.
