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.
So the closure of any academic pursuit is a diploma or title of some kind. I think in business school that closure should not only be a degree, but if you are fortunate enough a business. In the past few months, my teammates from the TMMBA program have formed a venture called TrueLight. I’m proud of our team and how far we have come from just a bunch of strangers during orientation near the washington/canadian border. We are now a team with not only an academic purpose but also a real business venture!
