The 2022 New Venture Competition is a celebration of entrepreneurial learning and competition. Hosted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Center for Entrepreneurship, this competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students, including those enrolled in the online MBA program. Team composition may vary so long as the lead presenter is currently enrolled at Nebraska or has graduated in the semester prior to the competition. To be eligible for the grand prize, the winning team must feature a student with 51% ownership of the venture and also be a registered entity with the State of Nebraska.
Individuals and teams are highly encouraged to register at the earliest date possible! By registering early, you gain access to the numerous and varied resources, tools, mentors and individualized coaching and plan review sessions designed to help you better address the core criteria used in evaluating plans and competitors.
Prize levels: 1st- $15,000, 2nd- $12,500, 3rd- $10,000 and 4th- $7,500. Top 4 have opportunity for further investment up to $25,000 from the Husker Venture Fund.
