The Bayou Classic BizTech Challenge will teach you how to craft a technology-based solution that keeps the end user in mind- a skill applicable to any future career pathway, whether you’re working for a Fortune 500 company or starting up your own tech business. 

Our private sector partners have provided some real world challenges for you to work on, or you can develop your own idea.  Either way, it’s an awesome resume booster.  You’ll have the opportunity to attend some transformative webinars on everything from creating an attractive LinkedIn profile, to building an engaging presentation, and accessing entrepreneurial resources. 

We also offer life-changing mentor engagements with industry professionals and business owners that can open doors, connect you to internship and employment opportunities, and jumpstart your career. 

All this is FREE!  AND you can compete for cash prizes from $250 to $10,000 and a chance to attend the Bayou Classic with travel expenses paid.   

So what are you waiting for?  Register today, and let's go!
