Fowler Business Concept Challenge Awards Thousands to UST Tech Entrepreneurs

You don’t have to be born creative to be creative. Creativity is really about being resourceful, and you know what requires a lot of resourcefulness?

Being an entrepreneur!

Because ideas are meant to evolve into living, breathing, things, The University of St. Thomas is less a hub for idea generation and more of a launching pad for new ventures.  The University challenges students to think beyond the confines of the classroom by asking them to apply their passions to the viability required by reality — competition style.

For the second year in a row, the University has enabled students to do this through the Fowler Business Concept Challenge where students compete for tens of thousands in scholarships. It’s made possible by the generosity of Ron Fowler, 1966 UST Alumni and chairman and CEO of Liquid Investments, Inc.
