Meet the Winners of e-Fest 2023!
Inspiring the entrepreneurial spirit
The undergraduate start-up world is hugely competitive and often restricted to a few select students from select universities. e-Fest changes that. We believe your venture deserves the opportunity to be showcased on a national stage. That’s why e-Fest offers cash prizes, connections, workshops and media coverage to help young entrepreneurs pursue the next level and inspire the entrepreneurial spirit.
e-Fest is a dynamic, three-day event that has awarded more than $1.5M dollars to nearly 500 undergraduates, representing more than 60 majors, from universities all across the country. Some students study entrepreneurship, e-Fest encourages all students to bring entrepreneurship to their discipline.

Most entrepeneurs feel discouraged at some point. What differentiates succesful founders is the guts to take a chance on their ideas and learn from their failures.
The truth is, not every idea will result in a fortune 500 business. But gaining confidence in the entrepreneurial process will inspire you to champion your own ideas and ultimately pitch them for success.
