Who better to give advice on how to prepare for the 2019 Governor’s Cup than this year’s winners of the undergraduate division who brought home $25,000?
Noah Asher, a senior finance and economics major, was a member of Spiritum Solutions, along with team members Nicholas Lester, Kiauna Rome, and Ingrid Helgestad.
Stuart McLendon, UA Little Rock adjunct professor, served as team sponsor of Spiritum Solutions. In addition to the team’s grand prize, McLendon received $2,000 as team sponsor, and Asher received a $2,000 cash prize for winning the undergraduate elevator pitch competition.
At the workshop, Asher, McLendon, and ASBTDC will share advice on how to form a strong Governor’s Cup team, how to write a robust business plan, and how to pitch successfully in front of judges.
