It started with 86 ideas and now it’s down to just five. Bucks County Community College, which has been incubating ideas and launching careers for more than 50 years, is down to the finalists in its first-ever Start Me Up Challenge, as aspiring entrepreneurs vie for a chance to receive funding assistance and professional mentoring for an idea, concept or business.
The contest, launched in January, is similar to the TV show Shark Tank, according to Tracy Timby, Dean of Business Studies at the public, two-year college.
The exciting finals take place on April 27 at 6:30pm at the college’s Lower Bucks Campus in Bristol. Locals can watch the Finalists pitch there investments LIVE! Get the link here.
