HOT OFF THE GRILL: WOLFFEST

Things will heat up next week for students from the Cyvia and Melvyn Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship at the C. T. Bauer College of Business. During a three-day battle of the pop-up businesses, they will soon discover if their entrepreneurship acumen can handle the heat.

On April 16-18, WCE will hold Wolffest on campus in Butler Plaza, in front of M.D. Anderson Library. The annual event is part of the program’s capstone course and the final steps for students in completing a BBA in Entrepreneurship from Bauer College.

A contest of creativity, business aptitude and teamwork, the event requires entrepreneurship student teams to launch pop-up restaurant stands and compete to see who can earn the most revenue and execute their plans best.

GET YOUR TECH BIZ OFF THE GROUND AT THREE DAY STARTUP (3DS)

The idea of 3 Day Startup is simple: start a technology company over the course of three days. We rent work space for an entire weekend, recruit 40 students with a wide range of backgrounds, cater food and drinks, invite top-notch entrepreneurs and investors, pick the best idea for a software startup during the Friday brainstorming session, and release a minimal prototype by Sunday night. The goal is to build enough momentum among a network of motivated people to sustain the company beyond the weekend.
