Applications are now being accepted for the UMKC Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation’s 2011 Regnier Family Foundations Venture Creation Challenge.

Intent-to-participate submission forms are due Feb. 11.

Last year more than 40 teams from across campus disciplines, including Business, Pharmacy, Law, Arts and Sciences, Dental, Computing and Engineering, and others participated, vetting their ideas for new business to 70-plus investors, entrepreneurs and business leaders. Five teams won launch packages valued at $15,000.
