The Hagerman Center and Entrepreneurs Society Present Zillion Solutions
What is Zillion Solutions?
Do you have a solution to a problem? Zillion Solutions is a campus-wide competition where graduate and undergraduate students of all majors (including undecided students) make a short video describing their unique idea for a new product or service that will solve a problem.
The videos are shorter than 2 minutes, so entering takes no time! Just use your phone or if you don't like filming yourself just make a Powerpoint video (see example)! Win up to $2,250 in minutes. The Hagerman Center/Entrepreneurs Society will never pursue your idea! Their goal is to help you launch it!
12 Prizes totaling $5,750!
