The Bullring: Shark Tank Meets Matadors

January 22, 2016

CSUN David Nazarian College of Business and Economics, in partnership with our on-campus incubator LACI@CSUN, is pleased to announce the inaugural Bull Ring New Venture Competition! Thanks to the ongoing support of David Nazarian as well as a very generous donation from Jeff Marine (also a CSUN Alum), this event has been made possible with the following prize amounts:

1st Place: $25,000

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). In order to compete, the "pitch" must be delivered by a CSUN student.
