The Raptor Tank Business Competition provides MC students across all three campuses and online with professional skills while providing an outlet for student success in a professional career as a business owner. This year, we were lucky to do so in a remote format to offer this important experience in a safe environment.
The competition supports student start-up ideas and economic development by bringing together students with mentors and judges from the entrepreneurial community in a real-life challenge. A select group of student entrepreneurs were selected for the final round after going through the process of submitting their preliminary pitches and attending business workshops. Six teams were selected to pitch their ideas in front of a panel of business leaders from a variety of industries.
A combined total of over $3,500 in seed money is eligible for the winners selected by the judges, including a bonus "Audience Choice" award where YOU as audience members will get to text in your favorite business idea during the broadcast time frame.
These prizes will be awarded and winners announced on November 18th, also on Montgomery College’s Facebook Live page.
Raptor Tank is a student-run program sponsored with profits from the student-run Macklin Business Institute Cafe on the Rockville campus, and in partnership with the Montgomery College business program and MC Enactus. This program is designed to promote student start-up ideas and economic development by bringing together students with mentors and judges from the entrepreneurial community in a real life business challenge.
The competition generally is held during the fall semester.
