Criteria

If you have a business or social cause, no matter how small, already going, we want to invest in the student entrepreneurs to help grow their venture. Students submit applications with short write-ups, including current links to their ventures' online presence, along with a short overview of how they plan to use the seed money to build upon their current venture. The committee of faculty and staff will then review the submitted applications for approval.

About the competition

Each year the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Program hosts the Ureka Challenge to help students experience entrepreneurship. The I&E Program invests $100 in seed money into young Clark entrepreneurs who participate, with the chance of additional awards up to $1000 at the end of the journey.
