Our Master's- Managing Venture Capital class, under Dr. Lascelle Sweetland's leadership, is currently participating for an American Entrepreneurship Award (AEA).
During the past 27th of February, our students, conformed as a whole team, conducted products and packaging testing through the newly created 'iLab' at our UAC School of Global Management's campus as a base to develop and launch their product.
The American Entrepreneurship Award (AEA) offers the Bronx and Miami-Dade County-based entrepreneurs the chance to receive a share of up to $50,000 in prize funding to support their new business venture.
The finalists will be announced in May, and the winners will be declared on June 2016.
The competition, that has participation of other educational institutions is sponsored by The Libra Group a privately-owned international business group that controls 30 subsidiaries active across six continents. It is primarily focused on five core sectors: shipping, aviation, real estate, hospitality and energy. Outside those areas there are selected 'diversified investments'. The Libra Group is wholly-owned by the Logothetis family.
