Clarkson University freshman athletes pitch gripping business concept for stickier sticks
POTSDAM -- Several Clarkson University freshman athletes have turned their passion for sports into a business concept and plan for a spray-on adhesive to improve a hockey stick¹s grip.
Each year, groups in Clarkson¹s Introduction to Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation class, made up of freshmen only a few weeks into their college careers, spend the fall semester working on a business concept. This year¹s class presented their ideas to a panel of alumni and faculty in November; some groups were awarded Clarkson Business School loans to further develop their proposals.
