I’m Rob Walsh.  One New York City university is helping students get in business.  On today’s Bottom Line.

When you put smart people together in a room, the sparks will fly.

That’s why Pace University in Lower Manhattan is creating the Entrepreneurship Lab – a space for students, faculty, and staff to learn from each other and share new business ideas.

It’s a way for students to get a leg up on the entrepreneurial mindset from day one.

And it’s right next to the Pace Small Business Development Center – so students who cook up good ideas have the resources to make a solid business plan, too.

For more information about the business development programs at Pace, go to www.pace.edu

I’m Rob Walsh, Small Business Services Commissioner, for 1010 WINS.

 

BizPlanCompetitions: Is a bigger jackpot better in business plan competitions?

Promoting entrepreneurship is a goal of the Pace University Business Plan and Pitch Competitions, says Bruce Bachenheimer in BizPlanCompetitions, clinical professor of Management, who runs both of the competitions. “One of our goals is to encourage an entrepreneurial mindset, which is important in today’s hyper competitive global economy, whether you work in an established business or not.”

Promoting entrepreneurship is a goal of the Pace University Business Plan and Pitch Competitions, says Bruce Bachenheimer on BizPlanCompetitions.com, clinical professor of Management, who runs both of the competitions. “One of our goals is to encourage an entrepreneurial mindset, which is important in today’s hyper competitive global economy, whether you work in an established business or not.”

The brevity of the university’s Pitch Competition is one reason it attracts a 400 person audience and a substantial number of actual competitors. That’s impossible to accomplish in a business plan competition because of the nature of business plans and the sheer length of the competition.

“The participatory nature of the pitch competition means that it’s benefitting the audience as well as the competitors,” he says. “Everyone gets to hear about the ideas and follow the give and take between competitors and the judges as questions are asked and answered.”
