Venture Design Challenge introduces finalists

Meet the Venture Design Challenge finalists whose projects have solved problems for everyone from music lovers to snowboarders to Pre-K teachers. The Venture Design Challenge is a campus-wide pitch competition that provides a forum for Lake Forest College students to identify problems worth solving and mobilize the people, resources, and networks to solve them.

Congratulations to the Venture Design Challenge finalists:
