Business Idea Competition
How It Works
The Business Idea Competition is a way to get student entrepreneurs excited about thinking up new business ideas. The competition also provides an opportunity for them to learn about brainstorming and idea qualification, practice pitching ideas on a tight timeline in a business format and connect with distinguished alumni and community members.
The inspiration for the competition came from discussions between Dean Mary Ellen Zuckerman and Christopher Burch ’76, who got his own start in business selling sweaters on campus while still a student.
