About the Fowler
Encouraging students to act on their ideas and to develop an attractive business proposal that they can confidently pitch to investors.
An individual or team develops a concept for a new business and submits that concept to the challenge. A panel of judges will review the initial submissions and choose semifinalists for the undergraduate and graduate divisions. Semifinalists will then prepare 20-minute presentations of their concepts to present to a distinguished panel of judges drawn from the entrepreneurial, business and investment communities. The teams presenting the best business concepts will be awarded scholarships.
$10,000 scholarship to first place in each division.
$5,000 scholarship to runner-up in each division.
$2,500 scholarship to second runner-up in each division.
All applications must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 p.m., October 5, 2012.
