Youth Startup Ecosystem forming around Regional Competitions
Students will win cash awards through business plan, pitch competitions

LANSING, MI                     

Event:            5 Minutes Tops

 

When:             March 4, 2015

                      5:00PM – 8:00PM

Where:           Lansing Community College West Campus

                        5708 Cornerstone Drive
                        Lansing, MI 48917

Details: On March 4th, 5 Minutes Tops will feature 10 student entrepreneurs from throughout the region pitching their business ideas in front of a panel of judges in an effort to win cash to further develop their business ideas.  The sharks (or judges) will hear each student pitch their idea for up to 5 minutes and will fund the winners with their own set of prize dollars.

54 students have submitted their registrations online and have since been narrowed down to 10 finalists who will pitch at this regional semi-final event. Students are able to then advance onto other pitch and business plan competitions such as the Lansing Youth Startup Challenge in April.
