It's a competition to encourage students to not only come up with business ideas, but to make those ideas happen in the real world. The Invent-to-Innovate Business Model Competition is at the University of South Dakota this week. There's a world-class lineup up judges, and everyone is looking for the next big idea. Howard Haines is an entrepreneurship instructor at the Beacom School of Business at USD. He joins us to talk about the program.
