SU Entrepreneurship Competition Entries Accepted

Perdue School of Business SALISBURY, MD---Have an idea to create a new business or transform an existing one? Want to win a share of up to $100,000 in cash and prizes?

Salisbury University students across all majors are invited to participate in the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business’ 2015 Entrepreneurship Competitions on Friday, May 8.  

The competitions start with an Invest in My Idea poster session that allows all participants to visually share their business ideas for awards and prizes.

Fifteen winners move on to the Gull Cage. This Shark Tank-style competition allows one minute for delivering verbal pitches about the ventures and four minutes for answering judges’ questions. Prizes include $4,000 for first place; $3,000 for second; $2,000 for third; and $1,000 for fourth.

These top four finalists move on to the annual Bernstein Award competition. Vying for a grand prize of $10,000, they will have 20 minutes to present and answer questions about their full business plans.

To enter the competitions, students must submit an online application and business plan, including exhibits and poster, via the links on the Entrepreneurship Competition website by Monday, April 20. The submission period opens Friday, March 6.
