Becoming the Next Big Fish

MIU is hosting the “Becoming a Big Fish Contest” annually, sponsored by the Concept to Market Institute at Maharishi International University (MIU)& ChangeMakers, in Fairfield, Iowa.

The Becoming a Big Fish Contest– a Shark Tank-like event is all about college students identifying and developing their own ideas for new products, business and services and setting the stage for them to become a reality. Maybe winning some prize money along the way.
