We are excited to announce the McGinnis Venture Competition as a platform exclusively for Carnegie Mellon University’s global community of student entrepreneurs.
The McGinnis Venture Competition brings together Carnegie Mellon's best and brightest student entrepreneurs to compete for $60k in cash prizes. All participants receive priceless interaction with alumni entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, an opportunity to raise capital and valuable feedback on their ventures.
This multi-round competition will kick off in late November, starting with two virtual rounds and culminate in a final live round celebration in Pittsburgh on March 22, 2013.
Registration for the 2013 competition has closed.
