October 19, 2016—Joel Feuer, executive director of the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy, was quoted in the Daily Bruin on the recent Lowell Milken Institute-Sandler Prize meetup which featured prominent speakers, including chief executive officers of local businesses. The Lowell Milken Institute-Sandler Prize for New Entrepreneurs competition gives students an opportunity to develop their own startups and compete for a $100,000 prize.
“Part of the idea of the competition was to get people to talk with one another,” Joel Feuer stated. “They all bring different expertise and skills to dealing with a problem.” Feuer said he thinks competitions can be very enjoyable and cultivate useful skills in fields like public health, policy and law.
UCLA School of Law will open registration for the Sandler Prize competition at the end of October. The competition will require teams of two to six UCLA students, including one law student, to work together on developing a business plan for a startup.
