Entrepalooza: A Celebration of Entrepreneurship at Georgetown

The StartupHoyas Challenge is our flagship event and one of the principal ways we connect our camps to the local startup community. It is open to all students in all graduate and undergraduate degree programs. Participants pitch their venture ideas to a panel of judges and vie for a spot in the final round, which takes place at Entrepalooza. The winners of the Challenge are chosen by a panel of more than a dozen experienced entrepreneurs and investors, and receive a $25,000 cash award to help take their idea to the next level.

Please join us on April 24, 2018 at 5pm in the HFSC for a campus-wide celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit at Georgetown.
