Startup Madness was born from a desire to gather the best university entrepreneurs in the region. The first year (see 2011 site) had participants from Duke, University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State. In 2012 there will be 10 schools from the ACC participating.
Top student entrepreneurs from across the east coast join the Triangle business ecosystem in a event that will leverage the feeling of March Madness. Come witness the crowning of the best student entrepreneur among the ACC schools.
