“Cha-ching!” chanted student Patricia Rogers as she took the $30,000 grand prize Friday in the final round of the University of the Virgin Islands' 13D Student Entrepreneurship Competition.

Rogers and her fellow competitors battled for $30,000, $20,000, and $10,000 to invest in their business models. Rogers came out on top with a proposal to establish a large egg farm, Heba Abdallah and Ghadeer Taha won second place with a lab equipment rental and leasing idea, and Shoshana Pemberton took third place with dreams of a roller skate rink.

“We were looking for a business that was real, that would actually launch, and then have the potential to be a success and grow,” said panelist Alex Randall, a professor of communication at UVI.
