EntrepreNU2015 Launches Friday, Sept. 26

In Announcements, by , on September 25th, 2014

EntrepreNU2015 launches this Friday, Sept. 26. at 2 p.m. in the multi-purpose room in lower level Gallagher Center.  Come out (and bring your students) to learn more about the competition and to enjoy some food and fellowship.  We will explain the rules and procedures, hand out the application packets, and answer any questions. The EntrepreNU Competition is a new program developed by a group of faculty and staff from all four colleges, the Levesque Institute, and ReNU Niagara.  Students will compete to create a self-sustaining business or entity that addresses a local social problem – with the winning team receiving up to $10,000 in start-up funding.  This year, the focus is on food, hunger, and nutrition in Niagara Falls, and we are searching for new, innovative ideas that are also feasible and realistic.  We hope that the competition not only furthers NU’s mission and helps the local community but also increases student engagement on campus by giving students an exciting opportunity to take charge of something meaningful.
