The $100,000 Entrepreneur Challenge

REGISTER NOW FOR $275

 

This unique program produced in partnership with Google Cloud for Startups is complimentary for a select number of companies.

To be selected, you must complete this three-step process:

Step 1: Submit the Entrepreneur Challenge Application Form to be considered for the challenge.

Step 2: If you meet our minimum requirements, you will be accepted into the Entrepreneurship Workshop, invited to take a booth in the Entrepreneurship Pavilion, required to pay a registration fee of $275, and asked to complete a longer Business Model Questionnaire (required for competition applicants.)

Step 3: Once we receive your completed Business Model Questionnaire, an extensive review of the first-round applications will be conducted. All qualified candidates will be eligible to participate in the workshop; however, prior to the event, the judges will choose a group of 15 who will give onsite presentations on Tuesday. From those presentations, the judges will select the final five who will present during the plenary on Wednesday. Attendees and judges will vote during the plenary for the grand prize winner to receive the $100,000 prize in Google Cloud credits.

Important dates to keep in mind:

  • $100,000 Entrepreneur Challenge Application submission deadline: November 1, 2018*
  • Business Model Questionnaire submission deadline: November 8, 2018
