Stony Brook Entrepreneurs Challenge 2014

Do You Have a Cool Business Idea?

Then sign up for the Stony Brook Entrepreneurs Challenge and win a share of $50,000 toward making your idea into a company. As part of the new Wolfielaunch program to encourage SBU student entrepreneurs, the Challenge will help you prepare to pitch your idea to a campus panel of experienced venture funders, entrepreneurs and business services professionals – and go on to regional and state competitions for more funding if you choose. You’ll have access to intensive mentoring – based on techniques from a Silicon Valley entrepreneur – practice your pitch and become a partner of Stony Brook’s “Cradle to Fortune 500” suite of business development programs. Open to any  student/any program/any level.
