2021 Big Idea Competition – The UTRGV Center for Innovation and Commercialization (CIC), a division of the Robert C. Vackar College of Business and Entrepreneurship will hold its inaugural annual Big Idea Competition this spring. This virtual competition is open to all current UTRGV students, faculty, and staff, as well as the RGV community at large. Winners will be determined by a pool of experienced entrepreneurs and business professionals.
An idea may be submitted by an individual or a team consisting of multiple people, whether UTRGV students or RGV community members.
ALL entries must be ideas, and not a developed business. As such, an idea that already has a functioning business associated with it will not be accepted. Specifically, the idea:
1. Cannot be currently generating revenues
2. Cannot already have received funding or financing of any form
3. Cannot have any legal form of incorporation
Once submitted, the idea is finalized for that round. Although amendments can be made, the fundamental idea cannot change. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions!
Please note, applications must be submitted in English. Finalists will be required to pitch their idea in English.
