If you are a student entrepreneur who owns a legally established early stage company, you may want to look into the Boyd Venture Challenge. This seed-fund grant awards up to $20,000 to legally established student startup companies each fall and spring semester. The competition is hosted by the Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in UT’s Haslam College of Business.
Students must submit an application to the Anderson Center by midnight on Thursday, Nov. 1. Applications should consist of an executive summary, request for funds and milestones that will be accomplished with the funds if awarded. Full application instructions and eligibility details are on the Boyd Venture Challenge website.
Teams that advance to the presentation round will pitch to a panel of business professionals on Friday, November 16.
