Our newest entrepreneurial competition, designed just for undergraduate students: solve a real company problem, work with a team coach, and compete for cash prizes.
We felt we were part of a bigger movement to help those in need through the Jones Idea Challenge. After the competition, a representative from Giving Tech Labs let us know that she was interested in using our idea around sentiment analysis. Knowing that we were contributing to a real-world project which would help people was so rewarding. It was the reason we got involved in the first place.Sharon Ideguchi & Veronica Garcia 2020 Jones Idea Challenge Winning Team
