Welcome!

e-Fest 2020

The timeline is finalized, and we are preparing for another amazing event with some of the most outstanding undergraduate student entrepreneurs and team advisors in North America. The final details and rules updates will be posted by October 1, 2019. Meanwhile, please feel free to get in touch with any questions!

This is our fourth $250,000 e-FestĀ® Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Celebration!

In 2019, our online and live judges again expressed admiration for the competitors while acknowledging how difficult it is to narrow the field to 25 finalists and the eventual top finishers. From a statistical point of view, our judging criteria have not changed but the average judging scores of teams continue to rise year over year since 2017. In 2020, we are expecting another elite competition and entrepreneurship learning experience.

In advance, THANK YOU to all student teams and advisors! We know it takes work and focus to cross the finish line with a good video submission and slide deck, and we appreciate you joining us. We believe all our competitors have bright entrepreneurial futures!

e-Fest is presented by EIX.org and the Richard M Schulze Family Foundation. Our mission at EIX.org is to improve the success rates of new ventures by promoting exceptional entrepreneurship teaching and thought leadership.
