e-Fest is a 3 day celebration of undergraduate student entrepreneurship, culminating in the final championship event of the Schulze Entrepreneurship Challenge. The challenge begins as an online competition. After a selection process, where each submission is reviewed by at least 2 judges, the Top 25 Finalists will be invited to Minneapolis to compete in person for recognition and cash prizes.

Top 25 finalist teams and advisors will receive a stipend to cover airfare, ground transport to/from the airport, hotel accommodations, and incidental expenses, such as snacks.


Finalist Competitors: Please plan to be checked in at the hotel and ready by 5 p.m. on Thursday.

Finalist teams and advisors are responsible for reserving their hotel rooms from a block of rooms set aside for e-Fest. There will be one room allocated for each faculty advisor, and at least one double occupancy room available for every two members on a team.
