SMIF Student Bridge Competition
After previously winning first place in SMUMN’s own elevator pitch competition last spring, James Perreault spent the summer developing his pitch even further to present his ideas at the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation’s Entrepreneurial Bridge Competition.
Perreault, a Finance and Entrepreneurship double major, entered the Competition with his idea, the “UV Canopy,” a product that would use UV-C lighting to disinfect bacteria off the surfaces of many day-to-day items.
Overall, Perreault not only showcased his entrepreneurial ideas within his presentation, but also his entrepreneurial spirit; he was an admirable representative of the SMUMN community.
