flash·point: a critical point when something suddenly creates significant action

The Entrepreneurship Advancement Center (EAC) invites you to enter their FlashPoint Business Competition!

FlashPoint is a 10-week guided program using the innovative approach presented in Business Model Generation. The business model helps you to systematically understand, design and implement a new business model or analyze and renovate an existing business. Targeted work sessions will help you understand your business, design, and re-work your business model. Each business will be assigned a mentor who will meet with them 3 times during the 10 weeks to provide feedback and guidance on their business model.
