In 2021, the Institute for Dispute Resolution’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation NJCU—Jersey City Connect Program at New Jersey City University has partnered with Greg Dell’Aquila, Chief Executive Officer of JDA Group and the founder of Mission 50, as a sponsor for the 1st ever Entrepreneurship and Innovation Pitch Competition. All New Jersey City University students are open to apply with an individual or team-based business idea for a chance to win $5000 to be used for the creation of this business. This will be the first part in a Hudson-county wide pitch competition, also sponsored by Greg Dell’Aquila, for a chance to win another $5000. The winners of the respective Saint Peter’s University, Steven’s Institute for Technology, and Hudson County Community college pitch competitions will also be participating.
This annual event is the only moot devoted exclusively to international commercial mediation and it is ICC's biggest educational event. During the Competition, university students face complex, international business problems, which they attempt to resolve by mediation conducted under the ICC Amicable Dispute Resolution (ADR) Rules.
