Luckily our roster of Cornell hosted competitions covers a wide spectrum of company activity. We have “idea” competitions that are simply that – formed companies cannot apply. We have industry specific student focused competitions that allow students to step up their game. We have competitions in which alumni entrepreneurs can participate as well. And we have competitions that are larger in scope that require a significant presence longer term in our geographic region.

We encourage students specifically to view competitions as a source of financing, which is typically non-dilutive. And we encourage students to enter as many as possible as pitch practice is a real benefit! In addition to our Cornell hosted competitions we also advertise offerings from other universities and national organizations via our eship listserv.
