The argument over college versus no college for entrepreneurs may rage on, but at Yale students are pitching their business ideas for the chance to receive funding, according to The New Haven Register.
Called “Demo Day,” the annual event has grown into a major opportunity for young Yale start-ups to find the seed money they need to flourish. It’s the culmination of a summer program in which students from across Yale disciplines work with experienced business mentors to hone innovative products and services.
Such enterprises as the restaurant chain Cheeseboy, as well as YouRenew and GreenBride Guide have emerged from the program.
