    TERP TANK

    Terp Tank was the culminating capstone event of two years of study in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program (EIP). For their capstone,  second-semester sophomores worked in teams to develop a for-profit business plan that achieved multiple bottom-lines of both profitability and social benefit. These projects addressed the global necessity to develop and implement solutions to critical social and environmental concerns in ways that were technologically viable and economically sustainable. Each student team  presented their capstone project to a panel of outside judges for the chance to win cash prizes from supporting sponsors.
