AU ideaLabs Competition

Elevating the Entrepreneur

The Dauch College of Business and Economics is committed to providing all students with real world experience to enrich their future careers as entrepreneurs.

Each year, Ashland University hosts the AU ideaLabs Competition, a business concept competition partially sponsored by the Entrepreneurship Education Consortium.

Student entrants come up with an original business concept and pitch it to a panel of judges. Previous winners have taken their ideas to the Entrepreneurship Education Consortium (ECC) regional competition where they’ve competed with other schools.
