Big Ideas Challenge
This Event Occurred in the Past.
If you like Shark Tank, you'll enjoy Big Ideas (though our judges are MN nice). And you get to vote!
Come see six student entrepreneurs present their BIG IDEAS for start up businesses in front of a team of judges that will award a total of $13,000 in prizes to the winner(s)! You will get to vote with your phone for your favorite pitch, the winner will receive an extra $2,000 People's Choice award.
Before this event, there is a Youth Entrepreneur Fair just outside the Auditorium - meet junior high, high school and college business people and learn about their companies. Both events are FREE and the public is encouraged to attend.
The Big Ideas Challenge is a student business plan competition run by the Minnesota State University-Mankato, College of Business Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
