Project Springboard

Project Springboard and its sponsors advance Bradley University’s entrepreneurship initiative by inspiring and educating aspiring student entrepreneurs in the creation, start-up, and early stages of launching a business.  The Project Springboard competition brings students real-life entrepreneurship experience and the opportunity to win cash and services valued at over $100,000 to help them successfully launch their new business venture.

Students receive guidance in the form of workshops on business startup topics, plus personalized coaching from a team of mentors.  Additional resources provided to participants include business plan outlines, financial statement templates, and tips on how to “pitch” an idea.
