Are you a student with a great business idea or do you want to team up with a student who has a great business idea? If so, the New Venture Challenge provides an exciting venue to pitch your business, get valuable feedback, network with representatives within Michigan’s innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, and last but not least, potentially win some valuable prize money!
For more than a decade, Michigan Technological University and Central Michigan University have collaborated to offer Tech students the opportunity to compete at the New Venture Competition in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. Students compete for more than $100,000 in cash prizes and in-kind services.
We will host an information session and two prep sessions — we encourage you to attend all prep sessions if you plan to pitch. The pitch competition itself will involve a trip to Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, where you will pitch your idea.
If interested, register online by March 1.
