University of Nebraska-Lincoln students compete for startup ideas
LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) — The University of Nebraska at Lincoln sought to instill some business savvy in its students this weekend with a “48-hour challenge.”
About 30 people competed in the multi-day event, splitting into several teams to delve deeper into the idea. It started with a Friday night pitch and continued into a caffeinated Saturday and Sunday with testing and mentoring.
End Goal: Introduce a Functional Startup.
“I love being a sponge and learning as much as I can, and I think this is one of those times where even if I fail, I fail,” said Eric Yim, a competitor. “So if I ever have an idea in the future, I know how best to develop it.”
One team of six people is working on an idea that aims to help students with an AI productivity assistant. The teams presented these ideas in the hall on Sunday evening, and some of the best received cash prizes.
