22 with five teams vying for $50,000 in seed money to help student teams turn their business ideas into reality, including two from last year’s Big Idea program. He will turn over the competition to Dez Menendez, who graduated from Colorado College in 2002 with a degree in a self-designed major in the architecture of word and image. She has started several businesses and been a consultant on artisan and trade-based businesses, developing systems for businesses to enhance efficiency and expanding existing business. “The process of thinking through the idea, how to articulate it, and how to execute it is a really valuable process for students,” Menendez said in a blog item posted the college’s website. “And it’s great to see students interacting with the community and working together, and watching how they build strong, diverse teams to balance one another’s strengths and weaknesses.” The competition is designed to integrate innovation and entrepreneurship into the college’s liberal arts curriculum. Students come up with and develop ideas for a dramatic innovation, small-business startup or social venture that they present Feb. 22 to a panel of five CC alumnus judges that divide the prize money among three or more teams. Judges include Bob Selig, president of Hayward, colorado marijuana Calif.-based Davis Instruments and a CC trustee; Kishen Mangat, general manager of mobile core and policy for Cisco Systems and also a CC trustee; Meriwether Hardie, organizational development manager for Denver-based Bio-Logical Capital, a land investment, development and conservation company; Susan Smith Kuczmarski, a leadership expert with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and Richard Koo, a visiting mathematics and computer science faculty member at CC. The five finalist companies, including the first two headed by women to make the last round, include: – Spindle, which received $5,000 last year for finishing third in the competition to develop its plan of using pulsating tones from devices implanted in a mask that fits over the user’s eyes to promote deeper sleep and improve memory retention. – FlyPhone, which competed last year but didn’t make the finals and is developing software for a drone that turns a smartphone into a personal cameraman for video selfies as a better alternative to “selfie sticks” and consumer drones. – Chica Chocolate, one of the two teams headed by women, which is making chocolate truffles to be delivered on a subscription basis to women that ease monthly menstrual and hormone cycles.
