StartupHoyas Challenge Preliminary Rounds

  • Georgetown University Rafik B. Hariri Bldg Washington, DC 20007 USA (map)

The StartupHoyas Challenge allows you to pitch your new venture idea to an expert panel of experienced entrepreneurs and business leaders.  Gain valuable feedback on your idea as well as the opportunity to meet with prospective mentors and investors. The top eight teams will advance to the final round, where they will compete for more than $15,000 in cash prizes and other services-in-kind.

Students may opt to compete in either the commercial or social tracks.  The requirements are largely the same – in both cases, the idea will have to include a sustainable revenue model.  In the case of “social” ventures, the judges will also consider whether the idea is likely to have significant social, environmental or other positive impact.
