Northeastern Shows Off Its ‘Secret Sauce,’ Awarding Nearly $5K to New Student Ventures
BostInno - 04/09/2013
Twenty-two ventures came into Northeastern’s Husky Startup Challenge with nothing but an idea. After three months of guidance and support from the University’s Entrepreneurs Club, however, they were able to turn those ideas into minimum viable products ready to be demoed in front Boston’s startup community on Monday night.
“It’s incredible how far they’ve come in a semester,” said Northeastern first-year Matt Voska, co-director of the Husky Startup Challenge.
Hosted by the Entrepreneurs Club, with the help of Northeastern’s Center for Entrepreneurship Education, the D’Amore-McKim School of Business and the school’s venture accelerator IDEA, the Husky Startup Challenge awarded more than $4,500 to students with the most innovative ideas.
