Loethen Serves as Judge for Cozad New Venture Competition at the University of Illinois

Bartly J. Loethen, a Founding Partner at Synergy Law Group, recently acted as a mentor and judge for the Cozad New Venture Competition at the University of Illinois’ Technology Entrepreneur Center.

The Cozad New Venture Competition (CNVC) is designed to encourage students to create new businesses. This year, the judges, who were hand-selected by the competition’s steering committee, mentored and heard pitches from 46 finalists (from 81 initial entrant teams), and then identified the top 8 teams who pitched their ideas to a larger audience. More than $225,000 in funding and in-kind prizes were awarded.

Loethen has served as a mentor and judge for the CNVC for the past seven years.
