Entrepreneur Quest is a program for any undergraduate or graduate student with a venture idea or just wanting to get engaged with other student innovators and entrepreneurs at Mizzou. Much more than a pitch competition with $30,000 at stake, EQ is an education program that involves engaging workshops, mentoring, demo days, and coaching from industry and subject matter experts. This opportunity will provide the most significant capital, to date, to student-entrepreneurs. Part of the program involves a series of workshops this fall:
- September 24, 5:30 – 7 p.m. – General Information Session
- October 1, 5:30 – 7 p.m. – Business Model Canvas
- October 8, 5:30 – 7 p.m. – Essentials of a Business Plan
- October 15, 5:30 – 7 p.m. – How to Pitch your Venture and the Application Process
These workshops will be conducted simultaneously with UMKC, UMSL, and MS&T via ZOOM. All workshops will be held in Ellis 114A and will include pizza.
The pitch competition to determine our 10 Mizzou semi-finalists will be the morning of November 12th in Monsanto Auditorium. The 10 teams chosen will then progress to a more formal online program during Spring Semester 2019. EQ is a program that will get students working on their ventures throughout the year. These initial workshops are just the beginning. Hope to see you there!
