This 24-hour entrepreneurship and innovation event is designed to infuse entrepreneurship into the Coe Experience. Join us Friday night for networking and idea generation, form teams to learn about turning an idea into action and build a business around the idea. On Saturday, that process will continue, and the event will end with teams pitching and presenting their business ideas to a panel of judges for prizes. Top prize for the event is $1,000 with many other prizes available for competing teams. All meals provided. You do not need to have a team or an idea to participate.
