Calling all innovators and entrepreneurs!

The UT Dallas Business Idea Competition is held annually and gives both undergraduate and graduate students from every school on campus the opportunity to develop and present their business ideas while competing for $20,000 in cash and scholarship prizes.

Past winners have gone on to start successful companies and to compete for additional prize money in business plan competitions around the world. Our judges, prominent members of the business community, include CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors.
