Last quarter, 12 TMMBA students successfully made it into the Investment Round of the UW Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CIE) Business Plan Competition. This is no small feat since only 36 out of 92 teams were accepted. During the Investment Round, 230 judges each had $1,000 CIE dollars to “invest” in the teams. The 16 teams with the highest investment advanced to the Sweet Sixteen Round. I really enjoyed attending the event this year. There was a lot of excitement in the room and it was fun to see our students pitching their business ideas to local venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and investors. This year TMMBA had 7 students on 3 different teams make it to the Sweet Sixteen Round!
Here is a short video from the Investment Round to give you a feel for the competition.
