Field of four teams advance to Tiger Cage finals
The Raymond J. Harbert College of Business is committed to providing a superior student experience, increasing cross-campus partnerships, and developing graduates who are highly skilled, professionally-prepared, confident, ethical and globally minded. The annual Tiger Cage Business Idea Competition checks those boxes.
Students began in September with fresh business ideas. Four teams hope to parlay those ideas into $50,000 in startup capital on March 27 at the 2020 Tiger Cage Business Idea Finals. The competition, in its sixth year, is sponsored by the Raymond J. Harbert College of Business.

Remora Robotics, a robotic drone that cleans waterways
Zach Wadzinski, Gi Lee, Harrison Smith and Dakota Newsome, College of Engineering
BrewMats, a portable mat that allows Beer Pong to be played without fear of knocking over plastic cups
