Gustie Entrepreneur Cup

Gustie Entrepreneur Cup

Students can experiment with putting innovative ideas into action at the annual Entrepreneurship Competition hosted on campus. Entrepreneurship requires critical thinking, promotes creativity and resilience, teaches how to deal with ambiguity, and allows students to learn what questions to ask, and where to look for answers.

Join us April 30th for the annual Gustie Entrepreneur Cup, with $20K in prize money! Past student-led innovations range from sustainable clothing, smart-energy, virtual gambling, and more!

Application requirements will be provided by January 1, 2022. In the meantime, form your team, think outside the box and create a great idea.
