Hurry and vote for Chapman student Tilden Smith as Forbes magazine’s College All-Star Entrepreneur!    Smith, 20, founded his first company as a pre-teen and funneled $40,000 worth of savings from it into his latest venture, a dog accessory maker called PetLawn (yes, it’s a doggie potty!). 

You have to “like” the Forbes Facebook page to get to the voting page. The Forbes Facebook is here: https://www.facebook.com/forbes

 The link to the voting is here.

Voting ends this Sunday, August 21.  The winner will be announced Monday, August 23.   (Tilden is in the lead right now – let’s help him stay there!)

Tilden and his business partner, fellow Chapman student Dylan Balz, won the Argyros School of Business and Economics’ Business Plan Contest last spring with their pet products plan (see our previous Happenings story).   Forbes was tipped to the story by Chapman’s PR office and chose to profile Tilden in the August special college edition of their magazine and online (see their story here — with Tilden wearing a handsome Chapman shirt for this national coverage!).
