Business 2257 is a Western second-year business course designed to teach students decision-making skills. One of the course assignments challenges students to create a new venture and outline the details in a written report and an oral presentation.

Completed in groups of six to eight students, the Business 2257 Feasibility Study Competition Finals features the top three project groups selected from over 200 feasibility studies completed each year. The project competition is widely recognized for its high quality and professionalism as well as for its ability to foster entrepreneurship. 

Each year, the winning team receives the Robert G. Siskind Entrepreneurial Award. This award was established in 1990 by the family and friends of Dr. Siskind to honour him for his outstanding contributions to the University and to recognize his entrepreneurial spirit. 

Registration is not required. All are welcome to attend!
