The Kellogg School at Northwestern took 1st; other participants included Duke, UNC-CH, Chicago Booth, Oxford and Manchester. Kudos to Graham Givens, Shannon O'Shea, Anindo Chatterjee, Mike Vigars, and Rafael Estevez for representing the NC State Jenkins MBA program so well.
NC State placed second at the Invest for Impact competition at UNC-Chapel Hill
last Friday. This is a unique competition where students play the role of investors looking for opportunities that pay off socially as well as financially. They evaluate business plans for three potential startups, decide which one is most worthy of funding and make a pitch for that startup. Actual investors and entrepreneurs participate in the process as well, with the investors serving as judges.
