|UNC undergraduate wins national entrepreneurship competition|
|Tuesday, November 25, 2008|
Tripp Gobble, a junior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, won the national Race To BE. The Sound music competition Nov. 19 in Austin, Texas, beating out four other young artists after a rigorous, day-long event.
Gobble, co-founder of a nonprofit student-run record label and music incubator at UNC, “blew away the competition,” event organizers said, and walked away with a cash prize of $5,000. “The most valuable part of this experience is the mentoring – the chance to work with such incredible entrepreneurs and learn from them,” Gobble said. “To me the opportunity is worth everything.”
