On March 17th, Lusher Sophomore Kelly Yu was named the winner of the Crazy Ideas Statewide Challenge. Her foreign language app, Moshee, won 1st place – a $10,000 scholarship for her and $5,000 for Lusher’s Entrepreneurship program! She was a Wild Card Entry into the competition – so she beat 3 other 1st place winners in the region!
The Trust Your Crazy Ideas Challenge was launched four years ago as a partnership between the Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans (JA), the Brees Dream Foundation and The Idea Village. The competition teaches entrepreneurial thinking to students and fine tunes their business pitches throughout several mentor sessions before a final round pitch during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week.
