Exhilarated entrepreneurs

Holding a check the size of a golden retriever was exhilarating for Matt Antenucci ’13 and his teammates. “It was great to see how our hard work paid off,” he said. “Especially because we felt like the underdogs as the only student team.”

UD Wind Solutions was the only group made entirely of students invited to participate in the final round of the UD Business Plan Competition. The team of three entrepreneurship majors and three engineering majors placed fifth among a record-breaking 95 entries, winning $5,000.

The results were announced at the end of the annual Entrepreneurship Banquet April 10. Local entrepreneur Russell Gottesman of Commuter Advertising gave the keynote address.

“It may seem like the world is against you, but it’s not,” he told the crowd of students, staff and entrepreneurs. “To be a successful entrepreneur, you don’t give up and you fight through adversity.”

Dean McFarlin, chair of the management and marketing department, thanked everyone involved in the competition, the 11th largest of its kind in the United States. “It doesn’t happen by magic; it happens by the work of the people in the entrepreneurship program.”
