A Cross-Campus Venture Competition
We are excited to announce the McGinnis Venture Competition, 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 investments. All participants receive crucial interaction with alumni entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, an opportunity to raise capital and valuable feedback on their ventures.
This multi-round competition kicks off in early January, starting with two virtual rounds and culminating in a final live round celebration at Carnegie Mellon University on Thursday, March 26, 2015.
