Registration open for 48-hour build a business challenge

Must Read

Build a business during the 48-Hour Challenge, Feb. 15-17. You’ll share your idea (no matter how developed it is) or come ready to contribute to another idea, form teams, develop a business plan, research your market and get advice from area entrepreneurs.

The 48-Hour Challenge is all centered on action, innovation and education. Beginning with Thursday night pitches and continuing through testing, business model development and basic prototype creation, 48-Hour Challenge culminates on Saturday night demos to a panel of potential investors and local entrepreneurs.

Participants are challenged with building functional startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. Mentors and coaches will be available throughout the two days to offer their functional expertise.

You can participate in the experience by enrolling in ENTR 325 (48-Hour Challenge: Building Entrepreneurial Teams and Testing Ideas), which is a one-credit-hour pop-up course with regular tuition fees charged to MyRed, or register for the experience at no charge, but receive no tuition credit. Choosing the best option depends on your academic needs. If you have questions, contact Mallory at or stop by the Center for Entrepreneurship (HLH 315).
