Volunteer for the New Venture Competition
We are excited to offer an excellent volunteer opportunity as part of the Baylor New Venture Competition this year!
Volunteering for the competition is a great professional development opportunity which will provide you a first-hand experience into the world of entrepreneurship. You'll also have the chance to meet and network with student entrepreneurs, as well as angel investors, venture capitalists, serial entrepreneurs, corporate CEOs, investment professionals, and business leaders from a vast array of industries serving as judges.
We have various positions available to assist with different parts of the competition. All volunteers will need to attend a training session prior to the competition on Feb. 28 and Mar. 1, 2014. Information for the training sessions will be sent to volunteers by e-mail.
