If you watch Shark Tank or have seen the rise of Uber, Airbnb or the LED bulb and thought, “I can do that! I’ve got a million and one ideas,” then Dickinson has just the venue to get you started.
The Innovation Competition at Dickinson offers students an opportunity to pursue an entrepreneurial idea they’re passionate about. Working in collaboration with alumni mentors, participants will develop their ideas over three rounds of competition, creating a business plan along the way.
The level of detail will increase with each submission, and three teams will be selected to pitch their ideas to a panel of alumni and faculty judges in the final round, on May 5, 2016. The winning team will receive $4,000, second place wins $2,000 and third place is $1,000. Interested teams should register between Dec. 11, 2015, and Jan. 29, 2016. More information will be made available on the competition website in the coming weeks.
