The StartupHoyas Challenge is our flagship entrepreneurship event and is open to all Georgetown graduate and undergraduate students. Aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas to a panel of experts; the eight top-rated teams will progress to a final round in late April, where they will compete for cash prizes, technical and professional support, and a place in the Georgetown Summer Launch Program, our campus-based incubator.
This year's preliminary rounds take place on Monday, April 9th, Tuesday April 10th, Wednesday, April 11th, and Thursday, April 12th, at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business. Following a brief judges orientation session, the pitches will begin at 6:30pm. Each team has 6 minutes to present, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A from the judges.
