The WMU Business Pitch Competition is named in memory of Dr. K.C. O'Shaughnessy, a professor of management in the Haworth College of Business and director of the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, who passed away in 2011. The work he started in the area of entrepreneurship led to the creation of events like this competition, the major and minor in entrepreneurship, and the formation of the business accelerator Starting Gate. His legacy lives on in the students who now benefit from these programs.
