Georgetown Entrepreneurship Challenge Guidelines & Eligibility

GUIDELINES: The Georgetown Entrepreneurship Challenge encourages students and aspiring entrepreneurs from across Georgetown University to share their entrepreneurial ventures, business ideas, or social enterprises with our community. Register on our GEC page to compete in the challenge event for your school.

Students will get 5 minutes to pitch their ideas to our panels of judge followed by 3-5 minutes of Q&A with the judges. Pitches will be judged based on feasibility, team, incorporation of Georgetown values, and overall presentation. All Georgetown students are eligible to participate.

The winning teams will advance, March Madness-style, to the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Challenge Finals on April 7, 2020 to compete for $35,000 in prizes!

ELIGIBILITY: All current Georgetown University undergraduate and graduate students are invited to pitch at the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Challenge. Students must pitch an idea that has not been pitched at a previous Georgetown Entrepreneurship Challenge or Bark Tank event. However, ideas pitched at Rocket Pitch, Ventures & Values, or other pitch competitions are welcome.
