Bronco Startup Challenge

Have a Business Idea?

We bring those to life!

Bronco Startup Challenge (BSC) is a business pitch competition where students present their business concepts and ideas to a group of industry experts and receive feedback. Our goal is to help students transform ideas into businesses.

Last year, 6 competing teams went on to create businesses!

BSC is an exciting year-long journey filled with discovery, invention, and collaboration. Near the end of Fall Semester, there is the Fast Pitch Competition which provides the students a platform to present and test their ideas. During the break and in the Spring Semester contestants and mentors improve their ideas and develop working prototypes. In Fall and Spring semesters, we provide multiple workshops from industry experts to train students in entrepreneurship.

Finally, in April, teams compete at the Bronco Startup Challenge!

BSC provides students:

  1. Unique entrepreneurship experience
  2. Mentors to help you along the way
  3. Networking opportunities that lead to funding and investors

Meet 2020 Finalists!

Last year's entrepreneurs are thriving today!
