Idea Test Zone
Are you a student with a business idea but aren’t sure what to do with it? One of the biggest hurdles for businesses is the feeling of anxiety and isolation we all feel when trying to take an idea into reality. Idea Test Zone is the place you may need to do just that; a relaxed chat about your business ideas, a place to throw something out there just to see what sticks.
You bring an idea and presentation, we bring the mentors to help give feedback and industry experience. Student teams can be in any stage of development, whether it’s just an idea, or an established business looking to grow into a new market. Each team has 25 minutes to pitch and have a back-and-forth conversation with mentors. Mentors are from every imaginable industry and provide well-rounded, unique perspectives and experience to help your idea grow. All sessions may be attended virtually by both students and mentors.
Idea Test Zone is from 10-11am EST on the following dates. Spaces are limited; registration is required for student teams via the button below:
