MONTCLAIR, NJ - The man who made the phrase, "Yo, dog..." famous will be live at Montclair State University. Randy Jackson, former American Idol competition judge, will be a judge at a pitch competition on May 6, held in the University Hall 7th floor conference center.
Free and open to the public, ten teams of students will compete for a $10,000 prize as part of the MSU annual student pitch competition called TeleBrands Inventors Day for Aspiring Entrepreneurs.
Students from the Feliciano Center entrepreneurship classes have been working for a full year to brainstorm an innovative idea to solve a real-world problem, test and validate the solution, and develop a plan to market and pitch the idea.
The judges--Randy Jackson; Todd Pettengill (co-host of WPLJ's morning show); Anthony "Sully" Sullivan (the British, blue-shirted guy on OxiClean commercials) and AJ Khubani (founder and CEO of TeleBrands)--will decide who goes home with a slice of the $10,000...and who goes home empty-handed!
