Entrepreneur Challenge – Collaborate with Rady MBA Students! (Meeting on Wed., Aug. 20th)

challenge logo

Attention: Students Who Want To Gain Applied Job and Business Experience

  • Student Group: UCSD Entrepreneur Challenge
  • Category: Business Competition/ Educational Seminars/Networking/Applied Science
  • When: ASAP for officers, next month for teammates, all year for competitors

Hello Business Undergrads!

There is an opportunity with an important student group on campus you can enter as either a contestant or an organizer. They are getting ready for the new year, and we are looking to spark interest early! 


This past year, David Eichhorn was Co-Chair of what has become an important venue for student innovation at UC San Diego. The Entrepreneur Challenge is a $100k business competition entirely run by students, and it is now entering its ninth year. They raise our own funds, they train our competitors, and they put on our own events. It was founded by Jacobs School of Engineering Students to provide a way for technical students to learn about the application of their discoveries into a real world business format, and for students to come through, learn how businesses work, and to make themselves more employable. “The Challenge” has become a well known event in the local business community with angel and venture capital investors, local business people, and local businesses. They are sponsored by big names like Qualcomm, ResMed, Janssen Labs, Connect, DLA Piper, and more. 

Although a Rady MBA student, David Eichhorn says that a VERY large portion of what he learned was from consulting on technical projects and from teaching other students how to pitch their ideas. He has a background in science, which is very different in how it communicates and thinks, and so he and his teammates made a particular effort this past year to teach students from the sciences how to thrive in business settings and how to take ideas and identify the value to business that would align everyone’s interests and allow them to thrive. They took contestants with no idea exactly what their business was or how to pitch it and in three weeks made them high caliber business pitches. You can learn and help too!

The Opportunity

Being a teammate or an officer in putting on The Challenge is an incredibly rewarding experience that puts you in contact with ideas from all over campus, that puts you in contact with business thought leaders in the local community, and that challenges you to coordinate with the highest levels of innovation at the University. By teaching other teams, putting on events, and helping make operations smoothly for The Challenge, students get exposed to job opportunities, leadership experience, training on how to interact with real business concerns, and most importantly, how to focus research on valuable applications for either business venture applications or grant proposals.

Open Positions:

  • Teammates: The lifeblood of operations
  • Chief Marketing Officer
  • Chief Operations Officer
  • Chief Fundraising/Financial Officer
  • Chief Technical Officer
  • CEO

Next Steps:

Training will be underway in the next week. Please show up to learn more, no obligation. Whether or not you decide you can contribute, we will teach you E-mail marketing, website administration, event planning, and business consulting development.

Attend a meeting at UCSD Rady School of Management in Multipurpose Room 2 (MPR2) on Wednesday, Aug. 20th from 5-8pm for more information. Also, visit the website at .
