Cintrifuse is hosting an event on April 13 that presents a huge opportunity for you.

Who: co-hosted by The Brandery, CincyTech, bioLOGIC Corp, and Cintrifuse 
What: one start-up business will have an opportunity to engage with 6 MBA cross-university teams that will be focused on solving a major problem they are encountering - the students participating are from:

  • Xavier University
  • Miami University
  • University of Cincinnati
  • Cincinnati State
  • Northern Kentucky
  • Mount Saint Joseph

Teams will be comprised of students from each participating university. The student teams will have 12 hours to develop a solution. Throughout the day, advisers from various active investment groups, service providers, mentors, local entrepreneurs, and university professors will drop in for advice, meals, coffee, mentorship and coaching.

Where: 299 E. Sixth Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202 
When: Saturday, April 13, 2013 - 9AM - 9PM
Why: This opportunity will provide students with real world business problems that must be solved, at the same time allowing for a handpicked local start-up to engage with potential future employees, while receiving direct evaluations and potential solutions for a key issue that is troubling them. The idea is simple. Create teams that consist of talented, yet diverse students from area universities. Challenged them to solve real problems. And observe as worlds collide. This is talent development, university engagement, a start-up advocacy wrapped up in one extra long day of mash-ups!

What do you need to do if you want to participate: send an e-mail to Anirban Maiti and Jen Bush letting them know you want to be considered.
