Pitch Your Way Into An Education

CNN Money:

One of the hottest proposals for a new — and possibly better — way to pay for college got one of its most important tests one snowy day this winter in a Clarkson University classroom.

Clarkson offered the contestants something pretty revolutionary in return. The students with the best business ideas would win full-tuition scholarships to the school — a prize worth more than $37,000 a year. The only catch: The winners have to give Clarkson a 10% stake in their business.
