Working on an exciting startup? BenDaniel Venture Challenge (aka Cornell Venture Challenge) application is now LIVE. The Challenge is an annual innovation contest aimed at providing exposure, support, and funding to entrepreneurial Cornellians/NY local startups. The Challenge will help develop business ideas into actionable and high-impact ventures. Last year, we experienced high-volume participation and received more than 70 qualified business plan demos. The Challenge will be a half-day event, a select group of participants will have the chance to pitch their business ideas to a VC judge panel. Prizes will be awarded to the top three finalists, including non-dilutive cash up to $50,000. Please find the details of the finalists from previous years at http://www.brventurefund.com/bvc.
