Get Started!

Phase I introduces you to the program and includes networking with business experts, who will present ideas related to innovation and entrepreneurship. You'll then create a concept for a new business, submit a business proposal, which is then examined and critiqued by a panel of experts.

Next Steps

Students with the most innovative plans will be selected to participate in the Muskie Tank main event--when a panel of business and industry entrepreneurs and experts (Muskies) will evaluate the proposals.

The Muskies will present the best entrepreneurial ideas with cash awards and scholarships.
