On February 28 MBBP IP and Licensing Attorney Howard Zaharoff helped judge the semi-finals of BU’s 2014 New Venture Competition. The contest is sponsored by Boston University’s Institute for Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization (ITEC) and is open to current and past BU students, both graduates and undergrads. Interested students and alumni participated in a fall or spring “Pitch and Pizza Competition.” The winning Pitchers went on to the second round, February’s semi-finals, which named six finalists.
These finalists will pitch their business to a panel of experts, including angel investors, and will be eligible for awards that include MBBP’s People’s Choice Award. The finals will be held on Tuesday, April 15th.
