Second prize is $7,500 cash/$7,500 in-kind, and third prize is $5,000 cash/$5,000 in-kind. For UWGB, Maria Arunkumar (Business Administration) will pitch her business model for Build-a-Wedding, and Tyrone Powell (Business Administration) will pitch his business model of Unext. Powell recently made the “Global Top 100 Pitch Competition” among 300 entrants from across U.S. campuses. Arunkumar recently made it to the semi-finals of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.
