More than ever, universities are a launch pad for ideas, innovations and new ventures. To support student innovators and connect them to the wider entrepreneurial community, on Wednesday, Feb. 12, the Fayetteville-based entrepreneurship support organization Startup Junkie will sponsor an idea pitch contest on the John Brown University campus in collaboration with Enactus JBU, Soderquist College of Business, and AEI. The event is free and open to the public. 

For a chance to win $1,000, contestants will pitch their idea for a business, product, service or solution in Simmons Great Hall on campus. The event begins at 7:00 p.m., and all students from John Brown University are eligible to pitch. 

The Idea Fame Contest, a 60-second elevator pitch contest held regularly across the state of Arkansas, promotes startups, new ideas and entrepreneurship. Prizes of $1,000 are awarded for the following categories: Judges Choice, People’s Choice, and Social Innovation. Official contest rules and registration (for students with an idea to pitch and audience members) can be found here.
