About this event
Join us in-person for the fourth Annual Burgess New Venture Challenge on April 7, 2022, from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Graduate East Lansing! The Burgess New Venture Challenge, hosted by the Burgess Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation at Michigan State University, is the premier pitch competition for student venturers.
For nearly two centuries, Spartans have ventured to feed a hungry world, fight cancer, invent new technologies, and kindle the imaginations of learners around the globe. We empowered our Spartan venturers to harness the power of the entrepreneurial mindset, work together, and leverage their team’s strengths to create a winning startup.
On Thursday, April 7, fifteen student semifinalists will have the chance to compete for a share of nearly $44,000 in funding. Register now for the opportunity to meet and network with our student venturers, fellow entrepreneurs, investors, and innovators across the Spartan nation.
