Calling All Companies: Launch DePaul Sponsorship Opportunities Available

Launch DePaul JudgesAre you a company looking to market to the Chicago area?

Don’t miss out on your chance to build visibility among the DePaul and Chicagoland community! Show your support for the next generation of entrepreneurs by becoming a sponsor of Launch DePaul 2015, DePaul’s annual new venture competition.

Launch DePaul is a university-wide competition, hosted by the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center, that spans over several months and includes workshops with Chicago-area entrepreneurs who help students hone their business ideas before submitting them for judging on April 1st. This year, on May 5th, the six finalist teams will pitch their companies to a 
team of VIP judges made up of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, tech journalists and business professionals in a “Shark-Tank”-like competition. Student teams will compete for a prize pool of $17,000 and the VIP judges will determine the winners in each division, Undergraduate and Graduate. There will also be a People’s Choice Award of $1,000 given to each division.

Sponsors of Launch DePaul receive many benefits, including VIP tickets to the Awards Night Event and the sponsorship of a DePaul student to attend the event. For more information on sponsorship opportunities and benefits, please contact Molly Haigh at mhaigh@depaul.edu or (312) 362-8625.
