UNC Monfort picks 5 Entrepreneurial Challenge finalists
“The business concepts were diverse, well presented and very impressive. This competition continues to attract great ideas and celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit in the Front Range,” said David Thomas, assistant professor of management for the college.
The finalists will present their business plans in a “Shark Tank” format during the Monfort College of Business Entrepreneurial Challenge on Thursday, March 8 from noon-5 p.m. at the University Center at UNC.
The event is free and open to the public, with opportunities to hear the presentations, meet the finalists and network with other entrepreneurs and business leaders.
Winners will be announced that night at the Bravo! Entrepreneur Awards at the Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley, a Northern Colorado Business Report event that the Monfort College of Business is sponsoring.
Tickets to that event are $45 and can be purchased at www.ncbr.com. 9News Business Reporter Gregg Moss will serve as emcee for the Entrepreneurial Challenge event and Bravo! award ceremony. This year’s first-place Entrepreneurial Challenge winner will receive $18,000. The second-place winner gets $10,000 and third-place receives $8,000.
