In April 2019, the top businesses from each school will compete at LaunchTank. The teams will have had two additional months to polish their business plans and pitches and gain more traction for their businesses. The top three businesses will receive scholarships to local colleges and universities, connection with a mentor, and a bundle of services and products from local businesses. All will receive additional constructive feedback.[/icon_timeline_item][/icon_timeline]
Student business teams will compete by submitting a business plan and pitching their plan to a panel of judges. The competition will favor real businesses that the student teams intend to launch or have launched. The criteria for winning the competition will be consistent with that used by investors.
