“Ten teams of University of Wisconsin student entrepreneurs will compete April 5 in Madison to represent the state in May at the International Business Model Competition, where $100,000 in awards will be distributed to top teams. UW-Extension and partners are presenting this inaugural Wisconsin Big Idea Tournament contest. The top finisher will also have the opportunity to be selected into Stage 1 of the Ideadvance Seed Fund created by UW System and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
The finals provide an opportunity for students, faculty, the business community and the general public to support Wisconsin’s young entrepreneurs and see the Lean Startup process in action – in person or via live online streaming.”
