The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Entrepreneurship Residential Learning Community (ERLC) and the Wisconsin School of Business’ G. Steven Burrill Business Plan Competition were prominently mentioned as catalysts for success in a recent article in On Wisconsin magazine.

A program attracting those with a passion to create and build, the ERLC is comprised of students from a variety of majors. Their mission is to teach students to put their ideas into action through the entrepreneurial process by imagining and assessing opportunities, harnessing key resources, learning from doing, and creating new sources of value. Faculty and staff from across campus provide leadership for the ERLC, and Professor Chad Navis from the Wisconsin School of Business is the faculty director.

The G. Steven Burrill Business Plan Competition offers an opportunity for students to develop and present business plans for new ventures. Nearly one dozen workshops, seminars, and skill-building sessions are available to them in the months leading up to the contest, each led by top Wisconsin School of Business faculty or Wisconsin business leaders that can help them to cultivate their ideas and prepare for the competition day. Top prize is a $10,000 cash award.
