How does your venture stack up against other Mississippi startups?

Find out at the Mississippi New Venture Challenge Pitch Competition on October 17, 2017 at the Jackson Marriott.  Entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to pitch their innovation based venture to a panel of judges, which includes select entrepreneurs, investors and entrepreneurial service providers, and win cash and in-kind service based prizes. 

The Mississippi New Venture Challenge is open to all Mississippi innovation and technology entrepreneurs. Selected applicants   will compete in one of three categories: student-led teams made up entirely of students; pre-revenue teams representing companies in the pre-revenue stage; and commercial teams of post-revenue, startup or existing companies with an innovation-based new venture opportunity.

Applicants selected to compete will be matched for mentoring by serial entrepreneurs, investors and industry experts. Judging will be based on an executive summary and the team's live investor presentation. Judges for the competition will include angel investors and select entrepreneurs. Please apply by October 6, 2017. To apply, answer questions listed below.
