Date(s) – 02/14/2019
11:00 am – 2:00 pm
On Thursday, February 14 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., 24 student startup teams from the University of Arizona Eller College of Management’s McGuire New Venture Development Program will come together to showcase their developing business ventures for students and the community to enjoy.
One business venture is “ReCreate,” a student team focused on helping crafters reduce their environmental impact and reduce waste through renewable raw materials.
According to Jeremeiah Whiteside, finance and entrepreneurship student at the University of Arizona and ReCreate team member, “The best part about our venture, ReCreate, is our ability to educate consumers about how they can take care of the planet through their hobbies. We’re excited to share our love for crafts on February 14th.”
During the event, one team will be selected to receive the Microsoft Social Innovation Award, which recognizes the team that most effectively and innovatively incorporates social responsibility strategies into its venture, that can best relate its venture’s social impact on the local community and that can articulate how it will extend the reach of that social impact as the venture develops. Microsoft serves as the McGuire Center’s social innovation sponsor for the event, which is free and open to the public.
