COLUMBIA, KY - A record 117 Lindsey Wilson College students participated in the fourth-annual Business Concept Competition, held Thursday at Norma and Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship.
The event was sponsored by the LWC Center for Entrepreneurship.
The LWC students - who comprised 39 teams - pitched business plans to a three-judge panel. A total of $2,100 in seed money was awarded to the top six teams, with the first-place team given $1,000.
The first-place team was Convo, who proposed creating a smartphone app that would translate text messages into a user's native language. The four-member team included LWC students: Pacific Mutayongwa of the Democratic Republic of Congo; Billal Qsiyer of Illzach, France; Elijah Ukpong of Lagos, Nigeria; and Greg Young of Nashville, TN.
The contest judges were: Jennifer Flatford, Walmart human resources manager; Kristen Sexton, a Taylor County (KY) High School marketing teacher; and David Stewart of Institute of Lean Systems.
