The Ureka Challenge is a months-long, yearly event designed to promote, develop, and grow Clark’s student ventures. Accepted ventures are awarded $100 of investment seed money from the Ureka Committee at the start of the Challenge. Over a span of approximately three months, participants are emerged in mentoring from Clark entrepreneurship faculty, as well as, alumni and successful entrepreneurs. At the end of the journey, the Ureka participants present to a judging panel of alumni, staff, faculty, and past Ureka winners, for a chance to be awarded up to an additional $5000!
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.
