    In-person challenge

    The next phase is the in-person competition, which will be held on UD's campus on Tuesday, March 27th. Your challenge for this phase is to create a two-minute pitch with an idea for a venture that helps solve the opioid crisis. You'll present your pitch live (no videos this time) before our panel of judges. After your pitch, the judges will have the opportunity to ask you questions for an additional two minutes.

    In addition to the competition, you're invited to join us on campus starting March 26th - we'll offer activities in the evening, a campus tour Tuesday morning and an awards reception Tuesday evening. Lodging and meals will be provided Monday and Tuesday. At the reception, you'll also have the chance to talk with students who are involved in entrepreneurship campus groups like Flyer Enterprises, Flyer Consulting, Flyer Angels and more. You must RSVP for this phase of the competition.


    Each member of the finalist teams will receive a scholarship to the University of Dayton:

    • 1st place: $40,000 over four years
    • 2nd place: $20,000 over four years
    • 3rd place: $10,000 over four years
    • Finalists who present on campus: $4,000 textbook scholarship over four years

    All participants will receive a UD t-shirt and certificate of participation. We will also award scholarships for finalists to attend our summer Entrepreneurship 101 program, with scholarships ranging from $500 to the full program cost.


    Please RSVP for the in-person phase of the competition by March 9.
