Eric Rego Big Idea Competition

The 10th Annual Big Idea Competition was held February 21, 2018. We had a packed house, wonderful panelists and judges, 10 amazing student contestants and a hilarious emcee. We got to honor Eric and our amazing entrepreneurial students!  Watch the archive video of the event.


A Moment of Truth

There’s a moment of truth that stands between innovators and entrepreneurs. Within that moment, you start something – a venture all your own. Everything after that is merely figuring it out.

The McNeely Center provides a thoughtful blend of education, mentorship and encouragement to students from any major.

With guidance and advice from McNeely staff, faculty and alum mentors, our students don’t simply wrestle with ambiguity. They embrace it.
