Missouri HS Students to Compete During GEW/USA
May 25, 2010
According to a recent article from the Southeast Missourian, area high school students will compete for $10,000 in prizes in a business plan competition during Global Entrepreneurship Week/USA — from November 15 - 21, 2010.
The contest, sponsored by the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Southeast Missouri State University, offers the chance to win seed money to turn ideas into real-life ventures.
Dr. James Stapleton, director of the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, said the rationale behind the competition was to get young people interested in being entrepreneurs as a means to promote regional development.
Dr. Stapleton, you won’t be alone — last year more than 1,000 organizations across the US conducted business plan competitions and other activities to celebrate the power of entrepreneurship to build economies and improve lives.
