Carbon Venture Challenge
April 12 @ 8:00 am - April 22 @ 7:00 pm MDT
Join the fight against climate change while competing for cash prizes by pitching your venture to industry experts, investors, and community members.
This is a ‘reverse pitch’ competition open to Boise State students. You don’t have to bring your own idea, as industry partners will identify challenges they face and pose these as problem statements. Participants will work on interdisciplinary teams to find solutions to these challenges, while building a venture.
There are three phases of this competition.
- Sprint (April 12-18, 2022):
Participants will attend daily meetings, composed of a mix of lessons, brainstorming sessions with industry leaders, practice pitches with mentors, and one-on-one meetings. Solutions will be refined into ventures through research, customer discovery, and idea validation.
- Preliminary Competition (April 19, 2022):
Teams will pitch to community leaders for their chance to compete in the finals for cash prizes.
- Final Pitch Competition (April 22, 2022):
Finalists will pitch to industry experts, entrepreneurs, and investors for cash prizes to advance their venture ideas.
