The process extends virtually through the entire academic year 2022-2023, culminating in Wheeling April 2023 at Bridging Innovation. Each time commitment is required and any changes that could occur will be emailed to you. Each deadline is also noon eastern time. Feedback and instruction are given for each round, so it is not necessary to have any business background to enter. It is helpful to have team members with different areas of expertise.
