John P. Ellbogen $30K Entrepreneurship Competition

Team Mentors

Our competition mentors are provided by the Wyoming Technology Business Center. Once the finalists have been announced, each team is assigned a mentor, who works with them throughout the process of crafting a business plan and preparing their presentation. In addition to providing their own experience and expertise, the mentors may connect the team members with other experts in the local business or university community who have experience that's relevant to that team's business concept.
