Following up a first place finish last year, the '11 team will once again go head-to-head against other top MBA programs


In the the spring of 2010, Johnson sent a team to participate in the MBA IDEACorps Challenge in New Orleans. In this, Johnson's very first IDEACorps Challenge, the team of eight Johnson students won, beating MBA teams from Booth, Haas, Kellogg, and Stanford.

In addition to the honor of their first place finish, the Johnson team greatly increased awareness of Entrepreneurship at the school, which has a new home within the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute.  The announcement about the 2010 team's victory can be found here.

To follow up last year's amazing performance, 2011 team leaders Pratik Shah, '11 and Aaron Holiday, '12 have selected fellow team members from a large and strong group of applicants.  Chosen to compete alongside Shah and Holiday are:

Brian Axline, '11
Ashley Crayton, '12
Peter Emigh, '12
Natalie Grillion, '12
Katy Maffei, '11
Abe Spence, '12

The 2011 IDEACorps Leadership Team will begin working with Johnson faculty advisors Risa Mish, director of the Leadership Skills Program and senior lecturer of Management and Steve Gal, visiting associate professor of Clinical Entrepreneurship and lecturer of Management, as it prepares to participate for the intense, week-long entrepreneurial challenge in New Orleans in March.
