The Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation hosted the sixth annual Regnier Venture Creation Challenge Competition on Thursday, May 4 and Friday, May 5. The RVCC event was a two-day, business plan and speed pitch competition promoting entrepreneurship and new venture development for university students in Missouri and Kansas and current Entrepreneurship Scholars.

The competition, underwritten by a generous gift to the University of Missouri — Kansas City by the Regnier Family Foundations, is designed to encourage venture creation through a forum in which students and program participants can present new venture concepts to local investors, business leaders, mentors and judges.
