Students can also meet and benefit from the experience of fellow entrepreneurs, the VIP judging panel, and industry representatives from the Entrepreneurs' Organization.
Local finalists will compete for a prize package worth up to $20,000 in cash and inkind services. The local winner will move on to compete against the world's best student entrepreneurs at the Global Finals for their chance at the prize of$50,000 in cash and inkind services.
