Youth Entrepreneur Challenge

Kansas Entrepreneur Challenge

Hunter Hulse – Awarded $1,200 for Mathematics Matters

Brooke and Tressa Wehrman – Awarded $600 for B & T Destinations

A student entrepreneurship competition featuring 61 high school and 8 community college teams from across Kansas has awarded entrepreneurial-minded students with $75,000 in prize money. The Kansas Entrepreneurship Challenge gave students experience in the process of making a business proposal. The annual event was organized by the Kansas State University Center for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship and was sponsored by the Kansas Masonic Foundation on behalf of all Kansas Masons, and supported by Network Kansas. The Kansas Entrepreneurship Challenge saw teams compete in two areas: an executive summary and a mock boardroom session. In the mock boardroom, judges reviewed each teams' executive summary and had 10 minutes with each team to ask questions about their businesses. The judges' scores were used to determine winners in the different competition divisions. High school teams also had the option to participate in a tradeshow event showcasing their products and services. Guests at the competition were able to vote for their favorite idea. The winning team received a $500 prize sponsored by Network Kansas. "This event is an opportunity to showcase the tremendous entrepreneurial talent we have in the state of Kansas," said Chad Jackson, director of the Center for the Advancement of Entrepreneurship. "The real-world experience of pitching a business in front of the type of business experts we have on our panel is invaluable to these students, and provides real-world feedback and support to launch companies within our state."
