Students from Delaware State University’s College of Business won the annual DSU Business Case Competition.
En’Liven — the winning team comprised of COB students Lashae Eden-Clemons, Kia Abrams, Alexis Sharif and LaShae Billips — took the top prize by developing the best two-year plan among the six competing teams to address the homelessness problem in Dover.
En’Liven’s winning plan involved partnering with the Habitat for Humanity Restore Center, the Dover Interfaith Mission Shelter and the Small Business Development Center of Delaware. Working as a nonprofit, the plan called for En’Liven to use those resources to get homeless people off the street and help them develop some small business possibility that would bring in income.
The students on the winning team are undergraduate business administration majors. As the first-place winners, each En’liven member won the top prize of an Apple Watch Series 3, which has cellphone capability.
En’Liven was coached by Brian Passerell, COB career and academic adviser.
The Business Case Competition was part of the annual Deep Day, a daylong event March 27 designed to give College of Business students professional development sessions led by visiting top-tier executives.
