eCornell’s Entrepreneur Video Contest


Cornell University’s eCornell is inviting current and aspiring entrepreneurs to participate in its eCornell Entrepreneur Online Video Contest for emerging product developers and designers.

From now to November 30, entrepreneurs who are developing (or have already developed) a new product or service can submit a 30- to 60-second video that explains or demonstrates their process for understanding what customers want and satisfying their needs. See here for contest rules.

The first-place winner will receive a full scholarship (worth US$3,500) for Cornell’s newest online certificate program, A Systems Approach to Product and Service Design, which arms entrepreneurs with a unique eight-step process for effective product development. Second- and third-place winners will have the opportunity to enroll in two eCornell product design courses each, free of charge (worth US$1,250 per course).

Winners will be announced on December 14, 2009 and will be selected based on quality of response, creativity, and methodology.

US legal residents aged 18 and above only.
