The ninth Startup Vikes competition was held Thursday, November 17th through Saturday, November 19th in Monte Ahuja Hall (Business building) and the Roberta Steinbacher Atrium (Levin College of Education & Public Affairs building) on the Cleveland State University campus.

The event was a resounding success for the Monte Ahuja College of Business and organizers successfully awarded prizes and cash infusion packages to the top three (3) companies created during the weekend. A People's Choice award winner was crowned as well. Engaged Learning takes tenacity and these students pulled together amazing concepts - ideas which organizers hope outlive the event and continue to grow.
