Melodie Ray Davis-Bundrage, a doctoral student in textiles, merchandising and interiors, was the winner of UGA's Next Top Entrepreneur competition, held earlier this spring in conjunction with Thinc., a nine-day university-wide focus on entrepreneurism. Melodie received $5,000 to continue her launch of Luv Mineral Cosmetics for women of color. She also will have an opportunity to meet with "angel investors" who are prepared to invest as much as $100,000 in "Next Top Entrepreneur" businesses.
To continue our efforts to encourage entrepreneurism across the university, the College of Family and Consumer Sciences and Terry College of Business have established a joint undergraduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship beginning fall 2013.
