The Entrepreneur Challenge 2019

The Entrepreneur Challenge is designed to foster community involvement and technological innovation by bringing multi-disciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, and business-minded students together with local area entrepreneurs and professionals in order that they might shape the world of tomorrow by securing the health of San Diego’s economy today.

The Entrepreneur Challenge is positioned as the premiere student-run business plan competition on the west coast because we are centralized in a nation-leading technology hub.

This innovation is supported by a vibrant entrepreneurial community, which consistently provides the Entrepreneur Challenge with first class competitors.

Challenging student entrepreneurs to dream, experiment, iterate, and persist

The Entrepreneur Challenge is a fully-integrated entrepreneurial development program. The goal is to provide aspiring student entrepreneurs with the necessary tools and resources to both think logically and act practically to commercialize ideas.

The flagship events include the annual elevator pitch competition as well as the largest business plan competition in the San Diego Community.

These competitions award the best companies turning them into successful businesses.

Why participate?

Come celebrate the 12th anniversary of the $300,000 Business Plan Challenge, where the competition’s top 6 companies will compete in High Tech, Life Tech, and ImpactTech tracks to win up to $50K in prizes.

Over the past 10 years, the Entrepreneur Challenge has given over $1 million and has awarded over 40+ teams which now have a total combined valuation of $1.2 Billion.

Join the second gala event, where you will enjoy a full-course dinner at the beautiful Hyatt Regency La Jolla, and network over cocktails with investors, mentors, entrepreneurs, students, and influencers from both the San Diego community and outside.
