This year I will serve as a judge at the California Dreamin’ Entrepreneurship Business Model Competition, which will take place on April 22 and 23 at Chapman University. As an active supporter of the University’s Leatherby Center for Entrepreneurship and alumni at Chapman University, I am both honored and thrilled to provide feedback and take part in this event.

Invitations have been extended to other schools to send their best teams in order to participate. These schools have the flexibility to send whomever they would like to, so long as they send a team who are either current students or have graduated within the current academic year at the university.

These student teams will compete in real-world-simulated processes of starting a business and seeking start-up funding, while receiving feedback from the judges to better help them reach their goals. The Competition allows these teams to compete against their peers in hopes to win prize money, become eligible for equity investment, and to have the opportunity to get Angels, Venture Capitalists, and other investors interested in their business.
