CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Spencer Patton Foundation, in partnership with the College of Business at Austin Peay State University, has released the names of the student finalists who will compete in the Patton Entrepreneurship Grant Competition at 6 p.m. Oct. 16 in the Mabry Concert Hall.

After careful deliberation, five individuals and one team have been chosen to participate in this year’s competition:

Each participant or team will have 10 minutes to present their business idea, followed by five minutes of Q&A with a panel of judges. Three grants will be awarded: $5,000 for first prize, $2,500 for second prize and $1,000 for third prize.

The event is free and open to the public to attend. Austin Peay and Clarksville community members are encouraged to attend to support these aspiring entrepreneurs.
