Entrepreneurs win the Bauervic Pitch awards
Northwood University students are known for their entrepreneurial spirit and their talents were fully on display at the 12th annual Bauervic Business Pitch competition on campus this week.
Known on campus simply as “The Pitch”, the contest is a true start-up contest where students compete for a share of $ 6,000 in prizes made possible by a generous donation from the Charles M Foundation. Bauervic. The competition offers students the opportunity to showcase the business skills they have learned in the Northwood classroom.
Students have five minutes to present their business idea to a panel, and then there is a five-minute question-and-answer session.
“Each five-minute presentation is the culmination of months of work,” said John Gussincic, director of the Northwood University Center for Creativity and Enterprise. “Students work on their start-ups for months before launch, attend business model workshops, and work with faculty, staff and mentors to develop their unique business models. “
The experts shared their “Tips from the Pros” videos created at the cutting edge Timberwolf studio, located in the Northwood Idea Center on Main Street in downtown Midland. These videos helped student entrepreneurs develop their business models and prepare for the pitch night.
