Valuable University Entrepreneurship Competitions

Sunday, March 13
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon E
500 E 4th St

The panel will discuss the benefits that university-sponsored entrepreneurship competitions bring to students, communities, and institutions; many of which may not be realized until years after an event. We share recent success stories from our community and describe how our competition environment serves as a platform for creating a network that fosters long-term working relationships between practicing entrepreneurs, students, faculty, business leaders, and university administration.
