Marietta College Renames Entrepreneurship Program | News, Sports, Jobs


MARIETTA – Marietta College’s former entrepreneurship hackathon is now called PioSolve.

The name was changed based on the 17 names submitted to the panel of eight judges selected to review the entries. Six of the 17 participants qualified for the semi-final.

The committee chose the name proposed by Austin McCleary of Marietta, class of 2022, who received a $50 gift card from the college, which he used to pay a bill at the Busy Bee restaurant,

PioSolve’s mission is to engage students in problem-based, multidisciplinary learning by providing the opportunity to examine the root causes of local and global social, environmental, political, and economic problems and to find creative solutions that students themselves themselves can implement.

Recommended solutions should result in actionable items that competing students themselves can potentially put into action. For example, students cannot simply say that the government should do “this” solve a problem. Rather, they must come up with a solution that the student team can potentially begin the process of implementing.

The first PioSolve competition is scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on February 18.
