Taking a Risk on Business Ideas

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) - Some local students are taking a chance and putting their ideas out there.

Seven teams competed Tuesday night in USC's Proving Ground entrepreneurial challenge.

The premise was similar to ABC'S "Shark Tank." Each team was given five minutes to present their subject matter before a panel of judges.

The judges were able to ask questions about each business idea, and they awarded points if they would consider investing capital in the venture.
