We invite all students, faculty and staff to join us for our Open House event!
You’ll learn more about:
- Entrepreneurs in Residence Program – Meet one-on-one with successful entrepreneurs and receive advice on business development, networking, and career planning.
- Hospitality Pitch Deck Competition – An experiential learning opportunity for student entrepreneurs who are contemplating, starting, or operating an early stage hospitality-based venture, and who are looking to improve their pitching skills, with the potential to earn seed funding for their venture.
- Hospitality Hackathon – An exciting way to bring together teams of motivated people of various backgrounds in a determined push to answer a specific question through self-expression and creative use of technology. Students analyze a series of challenges and must present solutions to these challenges with the help of supporting data. Students present these ideas to judges in a business or “shark tank” pitch to determine a winning team.
- Hospitality Business Plan Competition – This student competition begins at the start of the academic year and ends in early spring when the student teams submit their final business plans and semi-finalist teams make their presentations to a judging panel that selects the top three concepts as winners.
Registration is not required, and light refreshments will be served.
