At this all-day event held at Siena College in Albany, NY student teams (1-5 members) present their ideas in front of their peers and judges (successful entrepreneurs, business professionals, institutional faculty) culminating in an awards ceremony where prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place as well as 6 specialty awards.

Prior to competition day, teams will upload a video (no longer than 10 minutes) to YouTube where a coach (successful entrepreneurs, business professionals, institutional faculty) will review it and provide feedback.
