Feb. 10, 2020 - The Entrepreneurship & Small Business Institute (ESBI) at CSUCI has received a grant of $2,500 to support the creation of student pitches for the National Schulze Entrepreneurship Challenge, a competition open to undergraduate students in North America.

The Schulze Family Foundation is supporting undergraduate student idea and pitch creation across the country. Undergraduate students come up with an idea and create a video pitch, and the top 25 pitches selected from the online competition will win an expense paid trip with their faculty mentor to e-Fest® 2020, to be held in April in Minneapolis, MN.

There, teams will compete in the three-day celebration of undergraduate entrepreneurs, which includes pitching to national business founders and competing for over $250,000 in prizes. The teams can pitch a commercial or social impact product or service and must be undergraduate students at CSUCI to enter.

Submissions for the online competition will open on Feb. 14; visit https://e-fest.eix.org to submit your entry. To learn more about the Schulze Entrepreneurship Challenge and find competition details, visit the e-Fest website.
