BulbHead.com Inventors Day for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

BulbHead.com Inventors Day for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

A lucky bunch of Montclair State University students are about to embark on the thrill of their young careers!

On May 2, the University’s Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship will be hosting the BulbHead.com Inventors Day for Aspiring Entrepreneurs. This product pitch competition will award $80,000 to the winning student startup, and is the largest purse of any collegiate pitch contest in New Jersey.

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino (MSU Class of ’06) spoke with the man responsible for this exciting event, AJ Khubani (MSU Class of ’84) and founder of TeleBrands and BulbHead.com.

“I think all entrepreneurs that do really well want to give back, and this is the perfect place for me to do so,” explains Khubani. “I started my business while I was still a student at Montclair State University, and it’s fun to help the next generation of big ideas.” 

“Bulbhead.com Day” started five years ago. The first year saw four groups apply with the winning prize $10,000. This year, over fifty groups applied and 14 semifinalists will be participating in the annual pitch showcase

“It really has become a huge event. The room is packed with friends and family cheering on their loved ones, and I’m excited to see the event’s continued growth!” 

Another day, another winning idea from AJ Khubani!
