If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur based in North Carolina, US, an exciting opportunity is headed your way. Lulu eGames, NC State University’s annual startup competition, is set to take place on April 3 with cash prizes of $100,000 up for grabs. The competition is open to student entrepreneurs and includes two rounds with five categories: New Venture, Design and Prototype, Social and Environmental Impact, Arts Venture, and Built on Cloud. Students can take part individually or in teams.
The deadline to enter the competition is February 13. Participants are required to submit their application along with a video pitch. The notification regarding the people who have advanced to round two will be announced on February 27. Those who advance to the second round will be required to submit a business plan. The live event, on April 3, will feature pitches from the winning teams, an entrepreneurship expo to network with the finalist teams, and free food and fun giveaways, among other things.
Last year, one of the laureates of the Lulu eGames was Cyril Vanneste, from SKEMA Business School, with his project artistz.io.
It will be a true celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation at NC State. For more details, visit http://bit.ly/Lulu-eGames.
