Lewiston, NY - Attendees listen with interest as Niagara University President James J. Maher says a few words at the kickoff of the EntrepreNU Competition, a new program being run by the Vincentian Community Enterprise Project (VCEP), whichis a collaboration between faculty and staff from all four colleges, the Levesque Institute and ReNU Niagara. According to the website http://www.niagara.edu/entreprenu, Students will compete to create a self-sustaining business or entity that addresses a local social problem – with the winning team receiving up to $10,000 in start-up funding. This year, the focus is on food, nutrition, and hunger in Niagara Falls and we are searching for new, innovative ideas that are also feasible and realistic.
