ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, Nov. 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — ATLANTA, GA — Entrepreneurship among college students is booming like never before, and nowhere is this more evident than in the number of organized startup and business plan competitions take place every day on campuses across the country.
For heads of entrepreneurship programs and others involved in student-driven innovation at American universities, it’s nearly impossible to keep up. Yet it’s critical that university entrepreneurship programs and their students have this information — to research, plan, and enter the competitions that are right for their startups and inventions.
2Market Information Inc., which operates the Tech Transfer Central web portal (www.techtransfercentral.com) and publishes the field’s leading publication, Technology Transfer Tactics, has spent the past year developing the StudentVenture™ database and directory of business plans and startup competitions (https://studentventure.online/), bringing together hundreds of events into one convenient and affordable resource.
“Rather than spending hours researching and compiling available student pitching events yourself, we’ve done all the work for you – and you not only get full online access to the database, but you have also the ability to share the directory with all of your student entrepreneurs as part of our site license subscription option,” says David Schwartz, CEO and Publisher of 2Market Information.
StudentVenture™ is a huge time saver for entrepreneurship offices, adds Schwartz, and it’s a way to easily and dramatically expand support for student entrepreneurs. “It’s a huge added value for any entrepreneurship program, allowing your students to quickly and easily compare available competitions and plan their next move,” he says.
An individual subscription to StudentVenture™ costs just $249 for a full year of access, with the option of a site license pricing on a sliding scale based on the number of students included, with lower price tiers allowing smaller schools pay less.
Subscribers get instant access to a comprehensive, searchable database of student competitions across the country, with filters that let you search and sort by event date, application deadline, state or region, keyword and even by prize amount offered. Each contest entry includes a brief description, entry deadlines, prize amounts, and a link to the contest website. The site is continuously updated and updated.
Subscribers can also submit updates from their own competitions or add new events as they are scheduled, increasing visibility among potential contestants across the country.
In addition to directory listings, StudentVenture™ includes a valuable collection of how-to distance learning programs and articles that can be shared with student entrepreneurs, as well as a resource page with dozens of links to additional training. in entrepreneurship.
“The StudentVenture™ directory and database is an indispensable tool for busy entrepreneurship programs, which spend many hours of staff time researching, compiling and distributing available competitions to their students. This frees them to focus on their own programs, while allowing their students to find the right launch pads for their innovative startups,” says Schwartz.
