Nau Lecture Hall, Room 101

Entrepreneurship Cup

The Entrepreneurship Cup is a business-concept competition open to all U.Va. undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. Sponsored by Third Security LLC, this annual competition seeks to enrich the area's entrepreneurial community by encouraging new ventures with the potential to address unmet needs, solve social and economic problems, and do so in an interdisciplinary way.

Participating teams and individuals develop their entrepreneurial chops by submitting formal business concepts to a selected track, with qualifying teams pitching their concepts at that track's semi-final competition. The first-place team or individual from each semi-final goes on to compete in the Entrepreneurship Cup final on Nov. 22, 2013 (1 p.m., Nau Hall 101).

All presenting teams receive valuable, third-party feedback from investors and other competition judges, with winning teams also receiving cash prizes to further their concepts.

The Entrepreneurship Cup is a registered activity of Global Entrepreneurship Week, held in November each year, which “connects young people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.”
