$2,000 in prizes up for grabs in ‘2 Minutes to Win It’

For the first time, the UNCG North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center (NCEC) is offering its popular “2 Minutes to Win It” business idea contest in the spring. All full-time undergraduate and graduate students at UNCG, N.C. A&T, Greensboro College, Guilford College, Bennett College, Elon University, Guilford Tech and High Point University are eligible to compete for $2000 in prizes. Initial idea submissions are due on Feb. 21, and final pitches and awards will be presented on March 31.

“We’ve had such success with our fall competition, we wanted to double up and add one for spring” said Justin Streuli, director of the NCEC.

Students can develop original ideas for any type of business or social entrepreneurship venture. The only exceptions are that ideas cannot be franchises or a business or service that has already been started by the student. Students can enter multiple times, but all ideas must be submitted online at http://ncec.uncg.edu by Feb. 21.
