The entrepreneur challenge

The Entrepreneur Challenge is a 10 year old, student run, 501c3 non-profit organization that supports young entrepreneurs


Founded in 2006 at UCSD, The Entrepreneur Challenge has supported student entrepreneurs by providing them with the resources and tools to successfully grow their businesses. This includes bringing in distinguished guest speakers for events, holding an Annual Elevator Pitch Competition, hosting workshops to refine their pitch, and an Annual Pitch Challenge.

In its 10th year in 2016, The Entrepreneur Challenge created the 501c3 corporation, The E Foundation, to grow the size of the business plan competition from $100,000 to $300,000 and the impact we can have on a local and national scale. The goal of the Foundation is to support the spread of The Entrepreneur Challenge competitions, resources, and events to different colleges and regions.
