While sharing a basket of tater tots, four students in the University of Oregon’s “New Venture Planning” class decided on a ketchup project (surely they could come up with something tastier). Red Duck Foods, Inc. is the result. That’s only one of the student projects that has turned into a business in recent years. Among businesses that the UO has helped to launch, some were started by undergraduates still in school.
Representatives of two of those businesses and one of their advisors will explain how they got started, what assistance they received, and how they met the challenges they faced. They’ll also offer advice for others who would like to grow new businesses.
