e-Fest is a 3 day celebration of undergraduate student entrepreneurship, culminating in the final championship event of the Schulze Entrepreneurship Challenge. The challenge begins as an online competition. After a selection process, where each submission is reviewed by 2 judges, the Top 25 Finalists will be invited to Minneapolis to compete in person for recognition and cash prizes.

Top 25 finalist teams and advisers will receive paid airfare and hotel accommodations in Minneapolis. A stipend of $200 will be provided to the school to help teams pay for ground transport to/from the airport and hotel and incidental expenses, such as snacks.
