Advanced Econ Students Compete for Sabin Prize

Six teams will compete for this year's Sabin Entrepreneurial Prize on April 28.

The prize is awarded each spring to the team of Berkshire students who create the best business plan for a financially feasible product, service, project or program that also contributes to living in more sustainable communities.

"It's always fun to see how certain teams make it to the final night of the competition," said Chris Perkins, who oversees the Sabin Prize at Berkshire and teaches the School's Advanced Economics course.

"While it always requires healthy doses of innovative thinking, perseverance, and salesmanship, these attributes tend to play themselves out in pretty unique ways with each individual group," he added.

Earlier this month, Perkins and his students visited Yale University's School of Management as students there competed for the Sabin Sustainable Venture Prize. Both prizes are possible through the generous support of the Andrew Sabin Family Foundation.

Berkshire's Sabin Prize Presentations will be webstreamed live at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 28. Click here to watch.
