8th New Venture Concept Exhibition
On the 27th of April, the Center for Entrepreneurial Learning and Leadership held its 8th Venture Concept Exhibition in the College of Information Technology Atrium. Students from two sections of Jim Williams’s (Chair of the Advisory Council) MGNT 3234 entrepreneurship class developed business ideas and presented them in a simulation of a ‘trade show’.
The Venture Concept Exhibition allows students to present venture ideas to students, faculty and the community that they have been working on in their entrepreneurship classes. The students come up with an innovative idea, undertake some basic market research and think through the business concept. They are then invited to pitch their business idea for 5 minutes to a panel of ‘prospective investors’ and develop a trade show stand that demonstrates their business concept. The trade show typically carries on for 2-3 hours and the students are expected to draw people to their stands and engage in conversations about their businesses.
