Knapp Venture Competition: March 5th Application Deadline

A little about the Knapp Venture Competition:


Now in its 33rd year, the Knapp Competition has evolved into one of the premier academic business plan competitions in Southern California and it encourages Anderson students to showcase their talents and learn from insights of successful entrepreneurs and business executives. The Knapp Competition has given over 1,600 UCLA Anderson students a unique venture creation experience that has been instrumental in launching numerous businesses.


Over the course of the academic year, Anderson students refine business concepts, build teams, and develop business plans that they then submit to the Knapp Venture Competition. A select group of business plans will be chosen to compete in the semi-finals, with the top submissions advancing to the finals. The judging panels play a critical role in shaping the outcome and educational experience of the competition. Our judges not only ask questions to evaluate each entry’s viability, but also provide students with constructive feedback and suggestions for going forward with their ventures.
