The Macklin Business Institute and the Montgomery College Business Department will be holding the very first Raptor Tank Business Competition on April 1 at 4 p.m. The event will take place on the Rockville Campus in the Theatre Arts Arena.

The idea behind the competition is to support students’ business ideas and economical development by bringing students together with mentors and judges from the entrepreneurial community.

After working to submit their business plans and going to workshops,
Students have been selected to move to a final round where they will pitch their concepts to leaders involved in a variety of businesses.

The winners of the Raptor Tank competition are eligible to win $5,000 from investors to get their business started. Students will be able to text in their favorite business idea and the person with the most texted votes will receive the “Student Choice” award. The prizes will be distributed after the presentations.

The competition will be held at the Rockville Campus in the Theatre Arts Arena on April 1 from 4-6:30 p.m., followed by a career fair and a showcase of the Enactus social entrepreneurship projects which will begin at 2 p.m.
