Event description

Description

Join us—as either a participant or attendee—to preview the latest innovations at these two pitch and poster competitions. Present a poster and 90-second pitch to our panel of independent judges for a chance to win prize money. In addition to the prizes listed below, the audience votes to select a $1,000 People’s Choice award winner.

The Big Bang! + Little Bang! Poster Competitions are entry-level competitions; no business experience is necessary.

This Little Bang! poster competition is the second in a series of three poster competitions designed to support students on their entrepreneurial journey and promote business ideas where university intellectual property is not a primary driver. Participants must be currently enrolled UC Davis students at the undergraduate or graduate level. The third Little Bang! poster competition will take place in May. Prize money increases as the series progresses.

In this session, a verbal pitch is required for both the Big Bang! and Little Bang! Poster Competitions. Participants will stand next to their poster and give their pitch to a small group during several speed round rotations. This gives contestants a chance to practice their pitch before pitching in front of the group in Room 1213. To participate, RSVP no later than Monday, January 22, at 5 p.m.

For those of you printing your own poster, please email a high-resolution PDF of your poster to: Little_.29f5zncia7wrsn5x@u.box.com with the filename formatted as first name_last name_your phone number_your email address (e.g., Jane_Smith_5305551212_jzsmith@ucdavis.edu).

Deadline for submission is Monday, January 22 no later than 5 p.m. Late submissions will not be accepted to compete.

Little Bang! ONLY. Posters submitted by January 16 at 5 p.m. will be printed free of charge. Otherwise, registered participants may bring printed posters to the competition on January 24. Judges include successful entrepreneurs, alumni, venture capitalists, angel investors and professional service providers working in the university or business community.

Questions? Please submit questions to Karen Harding-Davis at kaharding@ucdavis.edu.

This event is free but registration is requested. Please let us know if you will be bringing a poster or if you are a spectator. Thank you.


Program funding for the Little Bang! is provided by the State of California through Assembly Bill 2664: University of California Innovation and Entrepreneurship Expansion.
