CSUF Entrepreneurship Students Present their Businesses to our Community

CSUF Entrepreneurship Students after their end of the semester business presentations

At the end of every semester CSUF Entrepreneurship students present their businesses or the progress they have made on launching their businesses to a panel of judges from the community, which includes: investors, bankers, entrepreneurs, and many other professionals. These are awesome learning experiences for our students because: 1. They get to practice pitching their businesses and 2. They get valuable feedback from our judges on how they can improve their businesses.

Director John Bradley Jackson discusses the importance of these panels to our students in this edition of the CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider.

Last Friday, Dr. Atul Teckchandani, Professor Jeff Longshaw, and myself hosted presentations that our students gave to judges (i.e. investors, entrepreneurs, and professionals from our community). These presentations are the culmination of a semester’s worth of work by our students and their dedicated mentors to craft actionable business plans or work on the launch of real businesses.

While these presentations and the questions from our judges can be stressful for our students they also are tremendous learning experiences. I think I can safely speak for the other professors when I say that our students certainly got feedback that can improve their startups going forward.

The semester is quickly drawing to a close; we only have two weeks left before the end of the semester and many of our students will be walking at graduation. My sincerest hope is that our students that are graduating will achieve everything they set out to accomplish. And, maybe, that some of the feedback that they received last Friday will help.

Thank you to all who participated!

Sincerely,
