Your Student's Business Idea May be a Winner!

Monroe Community College and the MCC Foundation are pleased to announce Launch Your Business! (LYB!), an opportunity for MCC students from all disciplines to turn a great idea into a successful business for Greater Rochester.

Made possible by generous supporters of the MCC Foundation and backed by a multi-year pledge of $250,000, LYB! will be a new category to Scholars' Day 2018. Students who pitch their business idea in the LYB! category are eligible to compete for cash prizes (start-up capital), exclusive access to business mentors, plus a scholarship to MCC's Corporate College's Launch Your Business! certificate program next summer. The top presenters will be invited back to compete for additional funding opportunities next fall.

LYB! is led by Professor Sherry Tshibangu, chair, and Professor Kathleen Borbee, vice chair, from MCC's Business Administration and Economics Department, in partnership with MCC's School of Business & Entrepreneurial Studies and the MCC Foundation.

Stay tuned to the MCC Daily Tribune and the Scholars' Day website for additional information. Questions? Contact launchbiz@monroecc.edu.
