Two start-up businesses, started by Hoosier students, are getting a leg up. Each has been awarded a $100,000 investment toward their ideas.

The companies were founded by IU students. One of the teams created a real-time, interactive social platform for users to experience sports and live events with friends and other fans. The other created an internet based tuxedo rental business that provides online fittings via webcams.

The teams will work with a mentor group of CEO's and entrepreneurs.
