Wentworth’s New Student Entrepreneurship Program Helps Students Turn Their Big Ideas into the Next Big Thing
IT’S NEARING 5:00 P.M. ON JULY 28, and a steady stream of students begins to file into the Evans Way /Tudbury Auditorium. They settle into groups, huddled around laptops, delivering presentations to the walls. The room is anxious. Tonight is important. As part of Wentworth’s inaugural Accelerate program, a new student-business startup competition, student teams have the opportunity to tell a panel of judges about their game-changing idea and potentially walk away with thousands in funding to get it off the ground.
