Save the date: Our second @ZellLurie Twitter Chat

Our first #ZellChat was such a success that we want to keep the conversation going! Join us at 10 a.m. ET on Thursday, December 4 for another Twitter chat where Sarika Gupta, managing director of the Zell Lurie Institute, will take over the @ZellLurie Twitter to tackle all of your questions about the Michigan Business Challenge and other business plan competition opportunities for students.

Round One of competition begins on Friday, December 5 at 1 p.m., so this Twitter chat will serve as a great opportunity for students on competing teams to ask Sarika any last minute questions before the challenge heats up.

Even if you’re not participating in the Michigan Business Challenge, Sarika can answer questions on all student opportunities in business competitions offered through the Institute and beyond.

If you already have a question in mind, please send it to rschlacter@v2comms.com and Sarika will address it during the chat. Feel free to tweet your questions in advance using #ZellChat or ask away during the chat.
