The Wolff New Venture Competition features 10-minute presentations by the top five entrepreneurial teams from the Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship (CCEI) Summer Fellowship Program. A panel of venture experts will engage the teams after their presentations and, by the eveningâs end, make a judgment about which team deserves the Wolff Prize and the $15,000 accompanying it.
The process started with 10 entrepreneurial teams selected by an independent panel (from 27 applicants) for the CCEI Summer Fellowship. One purpose of the Fellowship program is to lengthen the runway of support for the universityâs top entrepreneurial teams to take them beyond business concepts and toward market readiness. Another purpose is to keep entrepreneurial focus on venture concepts during the summer months. To accomplish both, CCEI provides (a) $15,000 for venture expenses and to compensate students for lost internship salary; (b) intensive training 3-days a week for eight weeks; (c) professional accounting and attorney services from our gracious sponsors; and
(d) networking with the venture community.
The Wolff Prize is endowed through the Thomas John and Bette Wolff Family Chair in Strategic Entrepreneurship, established to provide leadership for teaching and research in the field of strategic entreÂpreneurship. The Wolff family has a long tradition of business success, personal philanthropy, commitment to the UniverÂsity of Connecticut, the UCONN Business School, and the entrepreneurs of tomorÂrow. We are grateful for the support of Thomas John (1928-2008) and Bette, and their three children: Greg, Gary, and Debi.
