Presentations and Judging

HELD AT WILKES UNIVERSITY

The Entrepreneurship Institute is a free, three day program where you’ll learn how to think innovatively through quality brainstorming, and how to turn an idea into a viable project.  Your ‘teachers’ are local business owners who have succeeded in NEPA.  These entrepreneurs know what it’s like to start up a company and be successful in life. On the final day of the Institute, your team will present their big idea to a panel of judges and awards will be given to the winning teams.

Throughout the program, you’ll network and interact with some of NEPA’s most successful people (and maybe even land a job or internship!).  Just imagine something unique to put on a resume, valuable lessons in business, amazing connections, and the ability to turn an idea into gold!
