Rider University’s Center for Entrepreneurial Studies is holding its 2012 New Jersey Collegian Entrepreneur of the Year Competition.
This competition, which was previously run by Farleigh Dickenson University, offers student entrepreneurs from all colleges and universities across New Jersey the opportunity to compete for prizes and recognition for their endeavors.
Rider will recognize outstanding New Jersey student entrepreneurs who run their ventures while being full-time college students.
Prizes include $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place, and a plaque for third place, and will be awarded at a dinner ceremony at the university’s Lawrenceville campus in late spring. The prizes are made possible through support of Mercer Wealth Management, Right Energies management and several others.
The application deadline for submission is March 15. The application and details regarding the application process, rules and judging criteria, are posted on Rider University’s entrepreneurial program’s website, www.rider.edu/entrepreneurship. For more information, contact Dr. Lee J. Zane, assistant professor of Entrepreneurial Studies, at 609-895-5519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
