Students participate in the Entrepreneurship Deep Dive that is part of the new Ciocca Office of Entrepreneurial Professional Studies Program as an alumni-led workshop to motivate students to clarify their ideas and to make them more viable. Thirteen students and seven companies participated and engaged with each other to: formulate new ideas; create a business plan; establish an elevator pitch; and identify their MVP (Minimum Viable Product). This workshop was preparation for the annual spring Shark Tank event which will be held on March 26. The entire student body can compete in the event or watch in the audience. Contestants have the opportunity to win up to $10,000.
