Edson Initiative supports community of student entrepreneurs


March 6, 2013

There's never been a better time to become a student entrepreneur, says Brent Sebold, senior venture manager for ASU Venture Catalyst at SkySong.

With the launch of the ASU Startup Bowl and the 2013 Edson Student Entrepreneur competition, students have a growing number of ways to get involved in entrepreneurship at the university.

Since 2005 the Edson Student Entrepreneur Initiative has shared about $200,000 with approximately 20 select student companies to support their funding, office space and mentorship needs in advancing their ventures.

April 1, 2013 is the deadline for student teams to submit proposals for this year's competition.
