The mission of the UC San Diego Entrepreneur Challenge is to foster community involvement and technological innovation by bringing multi-disciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, and business-minded students together with local area entrepreneurs and professionals. The UC San Diego Entrepreneur Challenge is a student-run organization. We, as students, recognize the value that is formulated when cultivating young entrepreneurial minds. Realizing the potential of the ideas, the organization has setup a platform where scientists, engineers, and business persons may interact. Before our organization was born, there were limited venues for interaction to occur between the diverse bodies of entrepreneurs. However, since the implementation of the competition not only have we succeeded in connecting these entrepreneurs, but we were also able to link these cross-disciplinary teams with intellectual property law firms, angel investors, venture capitalists, and a broad spectrum of successful business persons in the community. Essentially we are bringing together the smartest scientific minds and the boldest business leaders in the community. Once a team establishes itself, the organization cradles to their needs using a three prong approach: we provide 1) educational workshops on entrepreneurship, 2) social events cultivating new venture processes, and 3) incentives for competition that showcases the contestants’ innovative ventures to the San Diego community.
