“Spark Bowl is the outcome of a unique and innovative cooperation between the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce, Startup Bucks and the Department of Business and Information Management here at DelVal,” said Tanya Casas, Dean of The School of Business, Arts, and Sciences. “The finalists competing work together with an advisor from DelVal’s Small Business and Entrepreneurship Center and with a student team. This collaboration provides students with a real opportunity to see first-hand some of the planning and problem solving that real businesses confront.”
