May 17, 2024

Bull Ring Finalists and Judges


In this year’s 9th Annual Jeff Marine Bull Ring New Venture Competition, five finalist teams stepped onto the stage with confidence, armed with visions to transform their respective industries. The top five finalist teams were Atlas, Practice and Potential, ReCreate, Rethrifted, and LS Trust Marketing

The winning pitch came from finance major, Laci Sanchez who won the first-place prize of $10,000 for her social media production company, LS Trust Marketing.

With a larger team and an expanded array of services, LS Trust Marketing aims to become the go-to destination for brands seeking to maximize their online presence and engagement.

In a post-pitch interview, Sanchez expressed gratitude for the opportunity to showcase her social media production company. “The CSUN Bull Ring is a great way to grow and learn for your business," Sanchez says. "I have such a sense of gratitude for everyone involved, and I encourage others to try out for the next Bull Ring.” Sanchez adds that with the support from the Bull Ring Competition, she is poised to bring her vision to life and leave a lasting mark on the market.

“The Bull Ring, to me, is more than just a competition. It’s an opportunity for our students to receive direct mentorship, obtain critical early-stage resources, and ultimately move their new venture ideas to the next level,” Adds Ryan Holbrook, Entrepreneurship Program Director for Nazarian College: “The final event is a chance for us to all come together as a community and celebrate the culture of entrepreneurship and innovation at CSUN.”

Chandra Subramaniam, dean of the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics, says the achievement of the finalist teams serves as a "testament to the boundless potential of entrepreneurship, innovation and ambition. The journey from concept to reality exemplifies the spirit of perseverance and determination that fuels the entrepreneurial landscape."
