Empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs.
We invite undergraduate students from around the world to pitch ideas for conscious capitalism ventures that make a profit while also solving a problem. Recycling plants that employ the homeless. Better access to autism treatment. Human-powered farm machines. Real-time organ donor communication. Winners take home thousands of dollars to help make their ideas come true.
Our competition rewards both innovators and investors. Innovators (undergrads from around the world) can pitch their business plans and act as investors in the other teams in our Investor Challenge, choosing who they think will advance in the competition. We are also providing more chances to win. Each of the 42 finalists has a chance to win at least $1,000 in the challenge.
Values and Ventures is presented by the TCU Neeley Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and made possible by generous support from the Richards Barrentine Donor Advised Fund of the Texas Women’s Foundation.
