Selected entrepreneurs will have the chance to present their proposals to the program’s advisory board for consideration Thursday, April 21, at SU’s Perdue Hall. The deadline for submissions is Monday, March 21.

Participants will pitch their business ideas to the board during a “Gull Cage” competition similar to the format used for the hit ABC-TV show Shark Tank.
