According to a recent survey, 50 percent of VCU students, across the university's 13 different schools, are interested in starting their own company. The Pop-up Pitch competitions, held Thursdays at 2 p.m. in Founder’s Corner, are open to any VCU student. And, even if a student does not win one week, he or she is welcome to come back and try again. Each week’s winning pitch could net a student entrepreneur $200.
