Do you think BIG?
Do you have big ideas that bring value to society? Are they viable and sustainable?
Want to realize it? Make it happen?
Big iDeas has big bucks for students like you!
Here's how it works
Develop your idea. Form the team you need to make it happen. Submit it to the Big iDeas Pitch Contest or Business Plan competition.
Big iDeas is open to undergraduates of all majors. It involves a founding team with a principal investigator (PI). The PI must be an undergraduate for the duration of the project phase.
What are the Pitch Contest and Business Plan Competition?
Big iDeas Pitch
: Get your idea off the ground. Pitch it for a chance at $1000 seed money and three months to build a prototype or pilot program.
Big iDeas Business Plan
: Turn your prototype or pilot into a business plan. Pitch it to a panel of business experts for $5000 and one year to get it started.
