Startup Madness at NC State
Collegiate entrepreneurs from all Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) schools are invited to gather at North Carolina State University for a different sort of competition in March 2013. Structured somewhat like the March Madness basketball playoffs, teams or individual entrepreneurs in Startup Madness (http://startupmad.com/) will compete through a series of brackets, pitching not a business plan but a working prototype to a panel of judges. Now in its third year, Startup Madness 2013 – open to undergraduate and graduate students – will be held at NC State’s new James B. Hunt Jr. Library on Centennial Campus on March 27, 2013. NC State’s Poole College of Management is the Championship Sponsor this year, and The Research Triangle Park (http://www.rtp.org/) is the Final Four sponsor. At NC State University, teams or individuals interested in participating should contact Lewis Sheats, entrepreneurship lecturer in Poole College’s Department of Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
