Xavier finance major Reisig places third at BIG EAST Startup Challenge

Feb 17, 2023

Finance major Jake Reisig's business idea won him $500 and a third-place finish at Thursday night's BIG EAST Startup Challenge, a competition between student entrepreneurs representing all 11 conference schools.

Reisig plans to build a website called RateMyCollegeLandlord.com, which will help students make better-informed decisions when looking for off-campus housing.

His performance at the competition — held virtually — continued a trend of strong success from Xavier students, who have placed in the top three in all but one of the four BIG EAST Startup Challenges held to date.
