Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota and Rochester Rising are organizing the first ever Student Entrepreneurial Showcase during this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week in Rochester. The event will be held on Thursday November 16th from 6-8PM at Saint Mary’s Cascade Meadow Wetlands & Environmental Science Center.

This event will be a live demo night, featuring products and services created by students in Southeast Minnesota. At the event, student teams will have the opportunity to showcase how their product or service works to solve a specific problem to a gathered community of peers, entrepreneurs, and engaged members of the Southeast Minnesota startup community. Products or services will be chosen for the event based on their ability to create an engaging, live demonstration and the likelihood that the product or service will be functional by November 16, 2017. Application is not limited to science or tech products or services. Products or services can also be web-based.

A cash prize will be available.

All applicants must be a current primary, middle, or high school student or be enrolled in a college, university, or higher education program. Priority will be given to students in Southeast Minnesota.

Interested student teams should fill out this short application to apply. The application will close on November 2, 2017.
