The Abrams Sustainable Business Challenge Finalists

This year on Earth Day, teams of Loyola University Chicago students will pitch their ideas for sustainable businesses to a panel of expert judges in the Abrams Sustainable Business Challenge. The top teams will win funds to help them launch their environmentally friendly ventures. The final pitch contest is the culmination of an immersive learning experience that includes workshops and classes led by faculty from the School of Environmental Sustainability (SES), the Quinlan School of Business, and the Baumhart Center for Social Enterprise and Responsibility.

The six teams to make the 2022 final round include two groups of SES graduate students. Carolyn Bido and Cynthia Boxerman will pitch their concept for The C-Suite, a sustainable pharmaceutical manufacturing venture. The other SES group includes Jake Stoner, Emily Conde, and Eric Ullrich. They will present their plans for a sustainable fashion business called Gecko Footwear. 

The four other teams participating in the pitch contest include undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Arts and Sciences, the Quinlan School of Business, and the School of Communication. Learn more about the competition and meet the teams on the Abrams Challenge webpage
