Spring 2 Minutes to Win It Results
Four entrepreneurial students walked away from the UNCG Alumni House with $2,000 in prizes on March 31st. They were the latest in a distinguished line of Greensboro-area students to conquer the 2 Minutes to Win It competition.
The contest, run by the North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center, features 20 Greensboro-area students pitching their entrepreneurial ideas to a panel of judges. Judges know nothing about the contestants, who have only two minutes to explain why their business concept deserves further development. First place winner receives $1,000, a guaranteed spot in Greensboro Partnership’s downtown Triad Startup Lab, as well as business, legal, and marketing consultations. Second place, third place, and Best Pitch winners are also eligible for spots in the Startup Lab and receive $500, $250, and $250, respectively.
