How to Enter
Submit an original business idea that, in 350 words or less, describes an innovative product or service that your students would like to create. Or, they can tell us about a business they’ve already launched! Be sure your students answer the following questions:
- What problem does the product or service solve?
- How do you propose making money?
- Who are your customers and why will they buy your product or service?
- Who is your competition and how are you going to be better than them?

Ten finalists will be selected by late October and invited to present their business ideas in person or via Skype to a panel of judges at Seton Hall University on Friday, November 18, 2016 from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m., with a reception to follow.
Plus your students can make a weekend out of it and attend our Open House on November 20.
