NACUSO's Next Big Idea Competition, our version of the popular TV Show "Shark Tank" is now in its eighth year, and 2020 marks the first year in which prize money is available -- $7,500 for first place, and $2,500 for second place, courtesy of CO-OP Financial Services!
We are pleased to announce the 2020 Next Big Idea Competition will now debut as a virtual competition! We will be giving all of the previously accepted applicants a chance to compete in a virtual playoff competition. The event will be set-up similar to a "March Madness" college basketball playoff competition. We are calling it the NACUSO NBI Playoffs! To win and move on to the next round, you will decide after hearing each of their brief presentations!
