Ready to celebrate the end of midterm week? Head to the Don Taft Center for the Grand Openings of three new student-run businesses owned and operated by Vanderbilt Class of 2020 Razor’s Edge Shark Cage Scholars Program family, who will celebrate their Grand Openings on Friday, September 14. This is an enormous accomplishment for these students, and we would like to invite you to come and participate and enjoy some of their great new food choices. Cash or credit cards are accepted.
Each Razor’s Edge Shark Cage Scholars Program student opens a business in their junior year, in order to fulfill their scholarships. Each business aims to engage all members of NSU community including students, faculty, and staff. Students went through specifically designed courses to aid them in getting their businesses started. From making Shark Pitches and Shark Funding Pitches to faculty members and entrepreneurs, students gained confidence in starting their on-campus businesses. This year, we have 4 businesses from the Vanderbilt Class. Three of them will be at the grand opening event. We invite you to ENGAGE with them and support their businesses.
