Welcome to the web portal for the $300K Entrepreneurs Challenge, hosted by the W. R. Berkley Innovation Labs at the NYU Stern School of Business.

We will begin accepting entries/submissions for the 2019-20 cycle on October 11, 2019.

How To Apply

Each team should submit 1 collective application.

  1. Select a Team Lead, who will be the owner of the application.
  2. The Team Lead will start the application process by selecting the desired competition track below. You are not permitted to apply to more than 1 track.
  3. The first task for the Team Lead will be to complete the Eligibility Quiz.
  4. Once the team's eligibility has been confirmed, the Team Lead will be prompted to add the email addresses of the remaining team members, who will act as collaborators on the application.
  5. As a team, complete all application components:
    • Venture Information Form
    • Info Form for each team member
    • Application Fee for each team member (a "team member" is any individual receiving any amount of equity in the venture, participating in program/competition activities, or both)
    • Eligibility Statement signed by all equity holders
    • Opportunity Summary
    • Supplementary Video
    • Supplementary Images (optional)
