About the Big Bang!

The UC Davis Big Bang! Business Competition provides free workshops through fall and spring, and concludes with pitches from our finalists at an awards ceremony in May. It's the largest annual business competition in the Sacramento region!

The competition is open to everyone and provides a forum for students, faculty, staff and the public to collaborate, develop and test business ideas. You'll find resources for mentorship, team creation, education and networking — and the winners receive cash prizes! Come to the launch to hear about:

  • How to enter the competition

  • New prize offerings

  • Our menu of workshops, offered in-person, livestreamed and on-demand

  • The Little Bang! Poster Competition for early prize money

Don't miss this opportunity to meet other aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs, share ideas, meet past winners, learn about the competition and formulate teams.

The Big Bang! is presented by the Mike and Renee Child Insitute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at UC Davis.
