Business Students Compete In UNK New Venture Day

October 22, 2018

Thursday, October 25, students in my Entrepreneurship class will get a chance to put what we have been studying this semester into real life practice at the UNK New Venture Day. At New Venture Day, students from across central Nebraska will be randomly put into groups and tasked with completing projects in order to come up with a business in one day. Students will negotiate with real bankers in order to secure loans, choose between real estate options, come up with mission statements, and finally present their idea to a panel of local business people. The last two years, members of my class have been members of the winning team. The students really enjoy meeting people with similar interests and going through the process of starting a business in one day.
