UVa-Wise student Kaitlynn Davis was the winner of $1,750 Thursday in the Entrepreneurship Cup Concept, a competition that encourages students to present a business proposal that would address unmet needs or to solve social and economic problems.
Davis presented a plan for the industrial farming of hemp as a replacement for non-renewable resources in the region and for economic development and job growth in the region. In her pitch, Davis covered pros, cons and challenges of the endeavor as well as ways to implement the process.
Students Tara Greear and McKenna Blevins, first runners up, proposed an online digital platform for social media management aimed at small rural businesses with less than five employees. Javier Wagner, second runner up, pitched his Minerva textbook online platform as a bookstore alternative that could help students by offering faster order fulfillment, limiting resales and reducing store front overhead.
Judges for the competition included Esther Bolling, executive director, SWVA Technology Council and president of Bolwell Financial, Mary Trigiani, founder of Spada, Inc. and Leton Harding, president of Powell Valley National Bank.
The Entrepreneurship Cup is an annual competition that seeks to enrich the area’s entrepreneurial community by encouraging new ventures with the potential to address unmet needs, solve social and economic problems, and do so in an interdisciplinary way. The Concept Competition is the first stage in a three part series of the competitions organized under the UVA Entrepreneurship Cup. The purpose of the Concept stage is to surface and seed ideas from all parts of the university at every stage of development. Students are encouraged to come up with out-of-the-box ideas that could be translated into compelling projects.
The post Economic and job development focus of Entrepreneurship Cup Concept Competition winner appeared first on UVa-Wise.
