Let your big idea become a business reality by winning this competition and jumpstarting your business.
Co-hosted by the Dr. Edwin Cottrell Entrepreneurial Leadership Center and the Keiretsu Forum Mid-Atlantic, the Sixth Annual WCU Business Idea Competition promotes creativity and idea generation by recognizing innovative ideas for new products, services, and technology.
The goals of the competition are to foster idea generation and to facilitate commercialization of business ideas.
Ideas will be reviewed by business angels and business advisors. The top ideas will be selected for the Business Idea Pitch event on April 25 at WCU. The Pitch Event is being sponsored by The Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce. Business experts and Keiretsu Forum Mid-Atlantic Angel Investors will judge the Idea Pitch.
Winners will be announced, and awards will be presented at the conclusion of the Idea Pitch.
Ideas that have not yet been commercialized and can be used as the foundation for a new business are eligible.
There are four tracks in this competition:
- WCU undergraduates
