HEY GRINNELL! The Gumball Capital Challenge has officially started! 8 teams of student entrepreneurs are competing to be Gumball Champions; check out their ideas and give them your support! See below for the eight teams (in alphabetical order) and their ideas!
Starting on Monday, April 2, the Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell will be accepting applications for Round Two of the Grinnell College Gumball Challenge! In this exciting opportunity, based on the original Gumball Challenge invented at Stanford University, Grinnell students create a business plan and are given a $50 loan to put their entrepreneurial ideas into practice.
SEG’s Gumball Capital contest produced many crazy business plans. What happens when you give $27 to group of students at Grinnell College (my undergrad) and get them to run a “business” for 10 days to raise money for charity? Possibly the most creative invention? Cupzzas! Yes, that’s right! Cupcake-shaped pizzas. Seth Gitter, a Grinnell College alumnus, posted about the cupzzas
