It’s time once again to sign up for the 2011 Regnier Family Foundations Venture Creation Challenge. Last year more than 40 UMKC student venture teams from across the disciplines and 70-plus investors, entrepreneurs and business leaders participated in the Venture Creation Challenge–and five winning teams took home launch packages valued at $15,000.
