Michigan Business Challenge

The four-month, multi-round Michigan Business Challenge helps students to transform their business idea from a rough concept into a sound business plan.  Supported by training and shaped by invaluable feedback from judges at each phase, students are exposed to a rigorous business development "boot camp" that reinforces the notion that a solid business foundation is necessary to commercialize a great idea.
