Twelve entrepreneurial teams will have a shot at more than $100,000 in prize money as they advance to the semifinals of the University of Notre Dame's McCloskey Business Plan Competition. These semifinalist teams will pitch their new ventures live before a distinguished panel of judges on April 14. The ventures range from a patented technology for a bone substitute, to a mobile phone application that connects alumni, to wind turbines to parenting workshops. "Feedback from our judges indicates that this is a very strong group of competitors," said Karen Slaggert, assistant director of the Gigot Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.
