Alerus Entrepreneurship Challege – 2011 Rules, Regulations, and Forms
The Alerus Entrepreneurship Challenge is designed for any undergraduate or graduate student enrolled at a North Dakota or neighboring state college of university. All judges for the competition are experienced entrepreneurs, not faculty, and we are asking our judges to provide useful feedback on every business plan. Cash prizes are awarded to the top three teams, and others prizes will be awarded for the “Best Elevator Pitch” and “Most Innovative Idea.”
The competition will take place annually at the University of North Dakota to continue to support innovation, entrepreneurship and development of future business ventures. Students interested in entering the business plan competition need to submit (1) a one-page abstract (2) an intent to compete form, and (3) a biographical information form. Forms for our 2011 competition will be available in the fall of 2010.
