Please RSVP

Everyone is welcome to attend the Cozad New Venture Challenge Demo Day. Come see UIUC student entrepreneurs showcase their startup ideas.

The campus-wide Cozad New Venture Challenge, held annually since 2000, provides mentoring to teams through the phases of venture creation; and workshops on idea validation, pitching skills, and customer development. In 2023, teams are competing for over $300,000 in funding and in-kind prizes. The awards are funded through sponsorship, alumni donations, and campus partners. Students will get to showcase their ideas at Demo Day to venture capitalists, early-stage investors, and successful entrepreneurs who serve as judges. The judges determine which teams will present their ventures at the Finals Event.
