2023 Beall and Butterworth Product Design Competition
Welcome to the Beall Butterworth Product Design Competition! This year, we’re excited to be launching our Kick-Off event along with the Merage Business School Business Competition. This opportunity will allow for students to have an increased ability to network and also more chances to win prizes!
We will have workshops for teams to attend to hear and receive guidance from industry experts and successful entrepreneurs.
The workshops have been completed, and it’s time to submit your first deliverable. NOTE: This is NOT a graded or judged deliverable. It’s okay if it’s not perfect. It is used to help you build a roadmap for your project submission and give the judges a glimpse of what you’re working on to give your team feedback.
