$100K Student Technology Venture Competition

SIE hosts the annual $100K Student Technology Venture Competition to give students hands-on experience as early stage entrepreneurs. Teams of interdisciplinary students work throughout the semester to develop a technology demonstrator and business plan to successfully develop a new company. It encourages intercollegiate partnership for senior design projects that can translate into new startup companies.

  • Senior engineering, computer science or liberal arts students create a new technology product
  • Senior business students create the business plan for the commercialization of the product
  • The competition is the culmination of their undergraduate work and will be judged by a panel of academic, business, and entrepreneurial experts
  • The winning teams have access to a prize pool of over $100,000 in funding and services to launch their new company
