The University of North Texas Murphy Center for Entrepreneurship, housed in UNT’s College of Business, awarded $40,000 in prizes to student winners of the center’s New Venture Creation Contest Nov. 9 (Friday).
The annual contest simulates the real-world process of entrepreneurs soliciting start-up funds from early-stage investors and venture capital firms. Each year student groups submit business plans for consideration, and winners are announced at the Murphy Center’s Leadership Luncheon.
The 2012 winners include Avant Solutions, LLC, ($20,000), which offers advertising, marketing and small business solutions; Click Clack ($10,000), a short films distribution business which aims to gather short films from around the world and organize them into DVD collections; Growin Green EcoFarm ($5,000), a start-up venture providing the Weatherford, Texas, area with high-quality, sustainable vegetables, fish and compost through the use of aquaponics.
