Up-Start! Competition 2014

About the competition

The Up-Start! Competition is a business pitch competition open to participants in the Entrepreneurship 101 lecture series. Individuals, or teams, must give a ten-minute presentation on an idea for a business in the following industry categories:

1. Information technology, communications and entertainment (ICE)
2. Cleantech, physical sciences and advanced materials
3. Life sciences and healthcare

The business must be one that they wish to implement or have already started. Entrants are expected to apply the concepts that they have learned from the course to their business idea and to make a compelling case that this will lead to a very successful business.

A prize of $15,000 will be awarded for the top business pitch presentation.
