Our friends at KPMG are sponsoring the upcoming Quake Capital West Coast Challenge competition and if you have a startup, an entrepreneur, an investor, or are startup enthusiast then we recommend that you should attend. For Cal State Fullerton students and alumni they are offering 50% off the price of admission when you use the promo code “StudentTicket” at checkout.
If you would like your startup to be considered for this competition there are two deadlines to keep in mind. December 7 is the early decision top 25 where out of everyone who has submitted by then the top 25 will move on to the competition. December 21 is the final due date where everyone who has submitted and was not selected for the early decision top 25 will get a chance to be part of the final 25 (there are 50 startups in this competition in total).
The competition itself is on January 12 and 13, 2019 at the USC Tutor Campus Center, Trojan Grand Ballroom. Day two of this event, January 13, is where everyone, from people who are actively starting a business to those who are considering it, to come in and listen to twenty VC firms from acceleration to late stage as they come together to teach the secrets of entrepreneurship and where founders often go wrong.
The grand prize for this competition is $200,000 in funding and a spot in Quake Capital’s Accelerator with the top 50 winning a benefits package worth $400,000 in startup discounts and credits!
