Calling all Wiscontrepreneurs! Throw on your thinking caps and mark your calendars; February 22–26, 2012 is your chance to showcase your entrepreneurial skills and compete for cash prizes in the Fifth Annual 100-Hour Challenge.

With over 60 entries, almost 200 students from two- and four-year educational institutions around Wisconsin participated in last year’s Challenge.
