By October 23, 2012 Teach IT

Tuesday, November 13, 6:00pm-8:30pm

Location: Lumpkin Auditorium, 8th floor, at the Moore School of Business, 1705 College Street, Columbia SC 29201

Event: The Proving Ground is USC’s business concept competition where students stand to win BIG money–$40,000 in cash and startup support! The competition is open to all USC undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines, at all eight campuses. Designed to identify and accelerate innovative business ideas – and reward the students who come up with them – the competition is a proving ground for everything from new technologies discovered in the lab to business ideas brainstormed on the back of a napkin. Submissions will be narrowed down to the top 9 finalists where teams will present their concept in a Shark tank-style competition on November 13 in front of a live audience. Judges will tally their votes and we will announce the winners of the competition! Come and support great ideas from student entrepreneurs!

Registration/Contact Info: Free and open to the public. For more information contact Lauren Edwards: 803-777-9796; [email protected]
