Sikorsky Aircraft, the Bridgeport helicopter maker, and Fairfield University are sponsoring a competition for entrepreneurs who are developing technologies that could be used by Sikorsky.

An overview of the Entrepreneural Challenge will be offered Thursday, Aug. 29, at 7 p.m. in Room 102 at the university's School of Engineering, McAuliffe Hall.

Sikorsky's Jonathan Hartman, who works in technology development, will discuss the competition and selection of partners to work with Sikorsky. Applications for the competition are due Nov. 1.

Competition winners will join a network of technical experts, business mentors, strategic partners, potential customers, and investors.
