The contest, at 7 p.m. in Butte Hall, room 104, is open to the public.
Eighteen finalists will be competing for a possible $1,500 in prize money. The finalists, all undergraduates, come from four colleges and bring a wide array of ideas to the contest.
Business ideas to be presented include phone apps, websites, engine starters, snowboard racks and even a new way to stir a cup of coffee.
One of the recent contest winners is current student Andrew Gazdecki, founder of the successful new Web-based start-up Bizness Apps http://www.biznessapps.com/.
One or more students will be awarded prize money depending on the strength of business ideas. Winners will be determined by a panel of four judges: Professor Daren Otten of the College of Engineering; Professor Bonnie Persons of the College of Business; Dan Ripke, director of the Center for Economic Development; and Dan Roberts, a local entrepreneur.
