Eureka!

  • theCO 541 Wiley Parker Road Jackson, TN, 38305 United States

A contest for bright minds to generate real business solutions.

Entrepreneurs are starters, initiators, risk takers and opportunists. Each of the colleges in our area are working hard to prepare their students to not only capitalize on opportunities available to them beyond graduation but also to make their own. Eureka is designed to inspire college students to develop the drive necessary to succeed as an entrepreneur while also connecting local business owners and organizations to fresh ideas. 

Through March 25th we're taking applications for college students to participate in this event, head here to apply: http://www.attheco.com/eureka

We'll pick 12 of the best students and match them with one of 4 local businesses/organizations (Havner's Frame Shoppe, Inc.Leaders Credit Union , the Jackson Chamber of Commerce, Zac Pankey Studios). The contest kicks off on Friday April 1st, with a reverse pitch, where the businesses pitch a challenge they are currently faced with to the group of students that have about 24 hours to find the best solution for their partner business. 

We'd love for you to join us Saturday, April 2nd at 7:00 p.m. to hear the pitches the students have worked on. Come to see and vote for some of Jackson's finest young talent! The 12 students are competing for 3 $500 prize packages and you can have a say in the vote!
