Fall 2017 Student Business

After a semester of evaluating opportunity and then planning to launch a business, students took off running during a 4 week competition to sell, sell, sell! Students in two Intro to Entrepreneurship courses (BUS 130) gave final business pitches to a panel of community judges at two separate MCC Shark Tanks. Overall, teams ended up with net profits of $2, 497! All of which was donated to various non-profit organizations.
