Funding Sources for New Ventures

Students have a variety of opportunities within the center to receive funding for their new venture. By taking your company through the entrepreneurship club teams you prepare for entering competitions like Opportunity Quest, Student Entrepreneur of the Year, and the Elevator Pitch competition. All of these competitions have cash prizes.

Once you have used our competitions to refine and improve your business plan, and proven that your business model can work, you’ll be better prepared to pitch your new venture to funding sources associated with our Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence. We work with a number of angel investors, private equity firms and venture capitalists. We can introduce you to the right funding source when the time is right.
