Raider Salute for MWest Challenge success

April 13, 2016

Assistant Professor Matheta Righa, Professor Jeffrey Spoelman, Assistant Professor Orletta Caldwell, Adjunct Professor John Rumery, Adjunct Professor John Schwalm, and Adjunct Professor Jorge Sanchez, as well as Brian Daily and his great team in our Business Lab, went above and beyond the call of duty in helping GRCC students successfully compete in the 2016 MWest Challenge, according to Professor Felix Pereiro, Business Department Head, Meijer Center for Business Studies.

The student business competition drew more than fifty teams from eight West Michigan colleges and universities. In addition to the contest for more than $40,000 in prizes, the event included workshops and opportunities for students to network with investors. Twenty-three GRCC teams submitted executive summaries for this competition and ten of those teams went on to present their business ideas on April 1, 2016 at GVSU during the day long event. GRCC’s Keyon Hall and Bessie Hall won an award totaling $1000 for The Shop Supermarket.

One of the most impressive things was that GRCC students competed against many students who are juniors and seniors, as well as MBA students at top four-year universities in West Michigan. The coaching and encouragement that our professors and staff provided GRCC students in preparing their executive summaries, PowerPoint slides, and oral presentations was invaluable. Professors and our Business Lab Team’s dedication to student success and excellence showed clearly the value-added proposition that exists in our business programs at GRCC.

A Big Raider Salute to Our Professors, Business Lab Team, and Staff for helping our GRCC students compete at MWest Challenge this year!
