The competition is part of a two-day Entrepreneurship Showcase event that includes a keynote address the day prior to the competition.
All Columbia College undergraduate and graduate students who are currently registered and enrolled may participate.
Ideas may be conceptual, in development or in early stages of startup and should solve a real problem for a market that is large and growing. They may have a social purpose but should be based on a for-profit business model.
Students may submit ideas individually or as part of a team. Up to ten ideas will be chosen to work with our coaches to develop a business plan and presentation. More than one idea may be submitted.
