Villanova Student Entrepreneurship Competition (VSEC)

The Villanova Student Entrepreneurship Competition (VSEC) is a student-only competition designed to allow students to create unique ideas around making the world a better place. The competition was founded in 2009 by two graduate engineering students, Ronald Warzoha and Timothy Montalbano, and continues to operate today in tandem with the Beyond Ideas: The Art of Entrepreneurship group on campus.
