The entrepreneur challenge


The Entrepreneur Challenge is a 10 year old, student run, non-profit organization that supports student 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 $100,000 Pitch Challenge.

In its 10th year in 2016, The Entrepreneur Challenge created the 501c3 corporation, The Entrepreneur Foundation, to grow the size of the competitions. The goal of the Foundation is to support the spread of The Entrepreneur Challenge competition and events to different colleges and regions.
