LSU students put their business ideas to the test in a Shark Tank style competition.
The university awarded cash prizes to several student start-up businesses. During the sixth annual Venture Challenge, students pitched their ideas to a panel for a chance at funding.
An e-commerce startup that promises to quickly ship performance auto parts to customers bested a crawfish pricing app, a vegan bakery and marketing mobile app to win the $10,000 top prize at the LSU Student Incubator’s 2017 Venture Challenge on Thursday.
Performance Mods was formed by LSU marketing major Joshua Cauley less than a year ago.
In all, the project gave out nearly $25,000.
