World's Richest and Largest Student Startup Competition - April 5-7, 2018
Investment. Connections. Coaching.
In general, any student startup team, in any industry, from any university, in any degree program can apply to the RBPC. Specifically:
- there must be at least one graduate-level student on the team, and the team cannot have passed certain milestones
- typically, the teams have a technology component in one of 3 broad sectors: energy and cleantech, life science/biotech, information technology, and technology innovation (for those startups which don’t fit neatly in another category)
- we encourage teams from multiple universities and across degree programs, but do not accept students in post-doc or certificate programs

We use StartupCompete (formerly iStart) to manage our RBPC applications:
Answer some short questions, upload a 2-5 page Executive Summary, and optionally, submit a 60-second video pitch (judges really like to see/hear about your startup!)
Every team will receive valuable feedback on its submissions.
Every team will receive a free subscription to Palo Alto LivePlan.
You can read more about submission guidelines here.
Applications are open now. The deadline to submit is February 10, 2017 by 5:00 pm CST.
