Dr. Deb Ferber judges with venture capitalists at California Dreamin’ 2016
Brandman University School of Business and Professional Studies faculty member Dr. Deb Ferber was a judge for the April 22-23 California Dreamin’ Competition.
The competition simulates the real-world process of starting a business and seeking start-up funding while also providing constructive feedback to all competing teams to better help them achieve their goals.
IOC Ventures, a tech investment fund in Orange County, was the lead sponsor for this year’s competition. IOC Ventures plans to invest a total of $150,000 spread among the three top teams.
The contest is by invitation only. The invited schools decide which team to send to the competition. Choices are internal business plan competition, in-school incubator selection, student entrepreneur group choice or other approach.
