UW-Green Bay student hopes judges say ‘I do’ to wedding app idea

“A student at UW-Green Bay is taking her first step down the aisle on the way to her dream of being an entrepreneur. Maria Arunkumar is competing for a cash prize in the first Light Up the Lakeshore business idea competition in Two River. She gets to pitch her idea to the judges. It’s an app that helps couples save money as they plan a wedding.” WBAY’s Aisha Morales featured Arunkumar and her idea this week.

Days 7 to 10 at the EIA in Cascais, Portugal

Cofrin School of Business lecturer on Ryan Kauth is keeping the campus community informed about the progress of UW-Green Bay students and recent graduates at the European Innovation Academy. Here’s the latest:

Marketing mentors arrived to the European Innovation Academy on Day 7 to help students prep for the Startup Expo, in which the students gave a 30-second pitch on their startup so far and got customer feedback on their digital prototypes. The goal is to earn a spot in the Product Sprint, which prepares for Day 15 pitching carousel, by Day 10. To get a spot in the Product Sprint, teams have to prove traction through the launch of their marketing campaigns by Day 8, in order to earn 1,000 leads by Day 10, make actual revenue (which one UW-Green Bay student’s team already accomplished,) or to get LOIs from companies.

On Day 8, teams focused on their revenue models, taking into consideration their target market and customer feedback, and worked on their marketing strategies with mentors. The goal is a spot at Product Sprint on days 11 to 13, where teams get to work with software, hardware and UI/UX mentors. UW-Green Bay Lecturer Ryan Kauth (International Business) served as the chief mentor for five teams at the European Innovation Academy, including team HiLume, whose CBO Paulina Godlewska is a UW-Green Bay student (Business Administration).
