2020 New Venture Competition

See Innovation in Action!


11 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 3, 2020

16 new student ventures will compete for $40,000 in cash and prizes at the 2020 New Venture Competition.

Come support the McGuire Entrepreneurship Program student startup teams as they present their new ventures in a rapid-fire rocket pitch competition and trade show. Students presenting their new ventures are enrolled in the Eller College of Management's McGuire New Venture Development Program, where they have received nearly a year of intensive experiential education that engages them in the process of moving innovation from an early-stage idea to a sustainable launch-ready venture. The competitive-entry program is open to undergraduate and graduate students from across the University of Arizona.

This year's event sponsors include H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation and Microsoft, the McGuire Center's Annual Social Impact Sponsor. For more details and to see a list of this year's student venture teams, visit the McGuire Center website

The event will take place in Crowder Hall at the University of Arizona.

Please plan to join us for this exciting event! It is free and open to the public.
