Across Brock University, there are many students that are making an impact by starting entrepreneurial projects and creating products to sell. Whether it is a passion project, a side-hustle that is worked on between classes, or a part-time venture, the Brock LINC and the Campus Store want to support and celebrate these student entrepreneurs!
Together, the Brock LINC and Campus Store are launching a new contest for Brock students to showcase their products in the Campus Store! This contest offers Brock University students the chance to have their products displayed in dedicated retail space from September 2023 – April 2024 at the Campus Store and on the Campus Store website.
The application period has now CLOSED.
In early February all applications will be reviewed and the top applications will be notified they have been selected as a semi-finalist in the contest. All semi-finalists will then compete in a social media contest in March to select the winning business. Brock University students will then have the opportunity to vote and select the winning business. One business will be selected as the winner and will be provided with free, dedicated retail space in the Campus Store and on the Campus Store website from September – April.
The application period has now CLOSED. Thank you to everyone that applied.
Check back to see when the next contest opportunity is available.
