Time running out for Penn State New Kensington 'Idea Challenge'
Penn State New Kensington students, faculty and staff members have just two more days to sign up for a chance to win $500 to help turn their entrepreneurial ideas into reality.
Submissions for the college's 2018 “Idea Challenge” will be accepted until Sunday, April 15. Ideas can be submitted on-line.
Questions include your contact information as well as the name of your idea and its description, and who will benefit from it.
Five winners will be selected from a panel and announced at an awards ceremony April 27.
Each of the winners will receive:
• $500 to support their idea
• Personal entrepreneurship mentoring, which will begin in May
• A spot to attend the 4-week IdeaTest Lab boot camp (four 2-hour classes) at The Corner in June.
• A chance to earn a spot in the Corner's Launchbox accelerator program (10-week boot camp) after idea refinement.
All the winners must agree to enroll in the four-week Idea TestLab course and go through mentoring throughout the summer.
The Corner will host additional events this month including a “Entrepreneurial Mindset & Taking Risks” workshop and a “What Is A Brand and Why Do I Need One?” presentation. Those will be held on April 23 and April 26, respectively.
