Event Details

Join us for the Final round of the 2013 Venture Challenge where 4 student startups will pitch for $25,000 cash! 
The Venture Challenge starts with a series of five free business planning workshops open to all LSU students and culminates with a final competition when four students will pitch their businesses to a panel of judges and a live audience. The judges will then decide how $25,000 will be distributed among the four startups. The final round will be held on April 19 at the Crowne Plaza Baton Rouge.

Please stick around after the competition at our cocktail/ awards reception where the winners will be announced. You can also meet other LSU Student Incubator members during the Startup Showcase that will be going on throughout the event. 

Thank you to our sponsors!
John Q. and Nancy H. Barnidge, Jones Walker, CB&I, L'Auberge Casino, HIT LIghts, Whitney Bank, and Red Six Media. 
The Venture Challenge is looking to support new, independent ventures in the early growth stage. The startup venture must be a current member of the LSU Student Incubator and the student must be at least 50% owner. All LSU students are encouraged to become a member of the Student Incubator. Any startup venture that fits these requirements, including non-profits, can enter. LSU Student Incubator Members must present all final round plans.
