New Venture Competition April 12

The last event in the Husky Innovate series will take place at Central Michigan University on April 12. For the ninth year, Michigan Tech and Central Michigan are collaborating to offer their students the opportunity to compete at the New Venture Competition (NVC) in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. Students compete for more than $100,000 in cash prizes and in-kind services.

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 Competition 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, perhaps win some valuable prize money.

The NVC provides a transformational experience in which students are able to earn start-up funds for their new venture. Students will have multiple opportunities to connect with experienced entrepreneurs, alumni, business professionals, venture capital experts, angel investors and faculty and community leaders.

Students who are interested must submit an “Intent to Compete” application for the New Venture Competition by Friday (Jan. 11). Register and apply.
