Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering | Resources for Online Students

The Fulton Schools of Engineering eSeed Challenge enables students to win up to $6,000 in seed funding and an all-expenses paid innovation field trip to advance their entrepreneurial ventures.

The eSeed Challenge is open to all ASU students who aim to prove or disprove that there is valid demand for a prototyped solution (product or service) beyond an initial beneficiary or customer. Organized by the Startup Center within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, this competition aims to strategically develop early-stage student ventures that may be well suited to compete for and win other ASU, local, national, and global entrepreneurship competitions.

The eSeed Challenge also helps all supported ventures to develop repeatable and scalable business models, regardless of follow-on funding or support opportunities. Applications for the Fall 2016 cohort are due on April 29 at 12 p.m. Apply now.

The eSeed Challenge is part of ASU’s Innovation Challenge program, a series of competitions that are defined and led by the University’s colleges and schools. The ASU Innovation Challenges engage students in the New American University design aspiration of valuing entrepreneurship and providing entrepreneurial experiences to all ASU students.
