MADISON -- Two million dollars in seed money will give University of Wisconsin students a chance to launch their own businessees.
 
The UW System and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation have created the fund to help aspiring entrepreneurs. WKOW-TV reported students are eligible for up to $75,000.
 
UW System Ray Cross says even if an idea fails, often there are successes that emerge from variations of the original idea.
 
Any UW System student or staff member is eligible to apply beginning in March.
