New entrepreneurs are being born everyday and some of them are coming from Howard County. I had the great pleasure last week of judging seventeen Howard Community College students as they pitched ideas for new businesses. The pitch competition took place during the Fall 2015 Entrepreneurial Celebration.
These students were members of 101 level business classes across multiple disciplines and from varied backgrounds. The competition involved pitching ideas for new businesses. Presentations were 3-5 minutes and were judged 50% on presentation, 45% on content, and 5% on use of time. Full business plans and financials were not the idea here. It was strictly about fostering new ideas and allowing the entrepreneurial juices to flow.
