What is 5 Minutes Tops?

A "Shark Tank"-esque competition in which students will prepare and present business ideas to local business owners for a chance to win cash prizes and assistance in your endeavor. You have 5 minutes to convince our panel to buy into your idea. There are no other requirements to fill.

  • If you require technology to present your pitch a laptop will be onsite.
  • If media is required please bring it on a USB drive or other solid state hard disk.
  • There will be a Q&A session after each presentation.

The contest is open to all mid-Michigan students and is put on to promote growth in our community and promote young entrepreneurs.
