2nd Place: $15,000

3rd Place: $5,000

$250 will also be awarded to all 20 semi-finalist teams. We will be offering a series of startup workshops to our student entrepreneurs as well as access to mentors and coaches along the way. RSVP above for the Information Session on Thursday, February 4th, 2016!

Ground Rules: Attendance at startup workshops is recommended, but not required. Minimum 2 team members, and at least 50% of team members must be current CSUN students as of the 2015-2016 academic year (Fall 2015 graduates eligible).
