The Bruins beat the Bisons both on the court and in the classroom during Battle of the Boulevard. Eight teams of undergraduate students from Belmont and Lipscomb universities competed in the Boulevard Entrepreneurship Pitch Competition on Nov. 18 in the Massey Boardroom. The students pitched their business ideas before judges during the event, which coincided with the Bruins and Bisons’ basketball game on Nov. 20.
“This first-ever business pitch competition between Belmont and Lipscomb provided a unique opportunity for students to refine their pitches and to network with young entrepreneurs from the challenging campus. Adding an academic event to the week of athletic focus provides an additional platform in which students can become involved. This competition was a great success, and I look forward to building this tradition,” said Belmont Center for Entrepreneurship Program Director Lisa Davis.
