Got an innovative idea to change the sport industry?
Thanks for your interest in 2nd annual Carolina Sport Court!
The competition is a “Shark Tank” for local and budding entrepreneurs in the early or ideation stages of companies that operate within the $500B+ world of sport, wellness, and fitness. In particular, we feel that this opportunity will help increase exposure for all companies in schools and departments that may not recognize the extent of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in North Carolina.
All full-time undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, and faculty from accredited universities are eligible to apply. Reviewers from the Kenan Institute’s Center of Sport Business and Analytics will select 8-10 companies that will be invited to pitch in front a panel of judges on Friday, February 17, 2017 in the McColl building (Room 2250) at Kenan-Flagler Business School. Cash and new venture counseling will be awarded as prizes!
Please contact Timothy McLoughlin, firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
