The McGinnis Venture Competition is open to all Carnegie Mellon University undergraduate and graduate students. The competition is for CMU student created, managed, and owned ventures.
A CMU student should be CEO, CTO or COO. Members of the student team should also own a significant majority of the equity allocated to all parties. Non-CMU students may be members of the venture’s management team and may participate. However, CMU students should deliver majority to all of the Round 2 video pitch and Final Round live pitch.
If you have any questions or are unsure if your team meets the eligibility criteria, please contact Allyson Hince.
