The Fall 2012 Entrepreneurial Celebration was a great sucess!
There were 14 students from the Entrepreneurship and Creativity class who presented their business ideas to an audience comprised of individuals from the college, business community, and peers. Darnell Alston with his business, Child Quest, was the first place winner. Child Quest is a GPS child location service that will help parents stay informed of the whereabouts of their children. Second place went to Christopher Jones, for his business, Line Leaders. This business idea will provide a mobile carpooling application for college students which will help them find transportation when needed. Three teams of students in Taking Innovation to Market class presented their market analyses of new technologies. The Celebration provided a wonderful opportunity for students to articulate their business idea that they have been working on throughout the semester. Looking forward to the Celebration in the Spring 2013 semester - hope to see you there!
