Illinois Wesleyan – 3 Day Startup

Illinois Wesleyan University alumnus, and IHT President Steven Dudash, sponsored an entrepreneurial contest compromised of 30 students, broken into six teams, to create a small business proposal from ideation, to prototyping, to pitch.

A panel of judges evaluated the pitches and chose to award $3,000 in seed money to the PieceOfMind team. The other five teams received $500 a piece.

3 Day Startup was designed to provide participants with hands on experience in starting a business and help them develop viable ventures, while connecting them with local entrepreneurs, experts and potential investors.

Constantine Vessol ’20, Jacqueline Rupprecht, ’22, Keenan Scott ’21, Daniel Gibbons ’22, and Jake Arthur ’21 received $3000 in seed money for the most compelling pitch at the 3 Day Startup event hosted by the Design, Technology, and Entrepreneurship program.
