Elevate has a mission to elevate entrepreneurial excellence through an annual faith-based business plan competition among national Christian colleges, universities, and fellowships.
Our vision is to elevate and mobilize a generation of entrepreneurs, investors, and leaders to work for the good of others (Genesis 2:15), use God-given gifts (Romans 12:6-8), and multiply God’s resources (Luke 19:11-27) for God’s purpose and Kingdom.
Elevate invites 4 teams from all over the United States to compete against each other at the National Finals. They will compete for a $50,000 grand prize in Silicon Valley, CA at this event in Spring 2017.
