Lubar Center for Entrepreneurship will bring together, enhance and expand UWM’s strong array of entrepreneurial programs, classes and activities for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as start-up and growing companies throughout the region.
The Student Startup Challenge provides funding and classroom support to help winners develop prototypes, mobile applications and business plans.
