2014 New Venture Concept Proposal Application
Venture concept proposal submissions are now open.
A complete Edson venture proposal submission must include the following components:
- Venture Name
- Venture Description
- Team leader demographic information.
- Team member demographic information.
- Primary mentor information.
- Venture proposal (an uploaded PDF file with a minimum length of 5 pages and a maximum length of 10 pages in length is suggested—see judging criteria for additional information)
