Brown-Forman Cardinal Challenge
Application is open for the Brown-Forman Cardinal Challenge. The annual new venture competition among graduate students from all over Kentucky and Kentuckiana will be held on July 27 & 28, 2023. The Brown-Forman Cardinal Challenge represents a prestigious, global academic competition with real-world opportunities and experiences designed to stimulate and reward innovative thinking and entrepreneurial persistence.
Annual business plan competition regularly attracts the biggest thinkers in grad school entrepreneurship — many of the competition teams go on to win national and international prizes. Judges’ feedback has a way of making good business plans better and better plans great.
The compact, one-day Challenge brings approximately 60 exceptional students and their coaches/mentors together for Business Plan and Fast Pitch competitions. The teams will compete for prizes by presenting their concepts to a panel of judges comprised of venture capitalists, angel investors, and successful entrepreneurs from three states.
The Brown-Forman Cardinal Challenge is a part of the University of Louisville College of Business’s Forcht Center for Entrepreneurship. The Challenge illustrates the College’s role as a leader in entrepreneurship education and real-world learning experience. It also showcases Metro Louisville as an expanding, entrepreneur-friendly marketplace. Business concepts, services, and technology developed by UofL students have gone on to launch as entrepreneurial ventures in healthcare, fitness, energy, media, beverage, and other industries.
