The $100,000 Business Plan Competition Is Back at Rady!

The Rady School of Business $100,000 Business Plan Competition is back! The competition is a part of the Entrepreneur Challenge, and for the last ten years, it has been one of the premier student-run entrepreneurial organizations at UC San Diego.

Starting as a small business oriented network group, the competition has grown to welcome and support all early stage companies coming out of the Rady School and surrounding institutes. The competition is two-parts.

The first part of the contest was held on May 20th for businesses in the Life Sciences track. Then, on May 27th, companies focused on innovations and technology will have the opportunity to compete for the grand prize. At both events, applicants pitch their best ideas and winners walk away with cash and in-kind services.

You can attend the $100,000 Business Plan Competition by RSVPing for the competition today. It will be held in the Beyster Auditorium at the Rady School, and all attendees will have a chance to win a new 2016 Macbook. RSVP now!
