The 11th Annual Elevator Competition should have no shortage of volunteers this year, judging from attendance at a St. Patrick’s Day party designed to recruit participants. More than three dozen full-time and evening MBA students enjoyed green beer, snacked on hot wings and registered for jobs ranging from signing in aspiring entrepreneurs to serving as “bellhops” for the competition itself!
The Entrepreneurship Club sponsored Wednesday night’s pre-event, where volunteers also received an official Elevator Competition pint glass (see below). It also gave students a chance to take advantage of great weather and socialize at the Worrell Professional Center Courtyard.
Hosted by Wake Forest University, the Elevator Competition attracts pioneering entrepreneurs from around the world, creating one of the premier business plan competitions – and a truly unique experience. All student volunteers will have the opportunity to network with executives and venture capitalists, meet business school students from around the world, and attend the Saturday night awards dinner on March 27.
