This past weekend a group of seven SEED students traveled to the Nussbaum Center for Entrepreneurship to attend Triad Startup Weekend. This 54-hour event allowed our students to network and collaborate with professionals and other students from the surrounding area including Raleigh, Charlotte, High Point University, and Wake Forest University. 

Most of our students ended up working with groups consisting mainly of professionals and each one excelled in helping their team create a business model with the potential for scalability. The ideas presented last weekend ranged from online-private education for students in Kenya, a “Sidekick” application locating sport partners when friends are not available, to a 3D-printing collaboration model, and an online-community for women diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.

The students’ success didn’t stop within their teams. SEED is proud of those students who made it to the final round of presentations, representing Elon with strong presenting skills and handling Q&A in a polite and appropriate way demonstrating a thorough knowledge of their concepts.
