Welcome to the Entrepreneuship Cup at the University of Virginia! This year, the 2014 E-CUP Final will be held on Friday, November 21, 1pm-6pm. For more information about the E-Cup and how it works, please browse the links on the right. Questions? Contact Cheryl Wagner.

New this year will be a theme-based competition using four themed tracks instead of holding competitions in each school. Students have always been allowed and encouraged to enter the competition of their choosing, and the idea of themes is designed to help compare “apples to apples” in the competition.

Two finalists from each themed track move forward to the E-cup finals (on November 21). In the E-cup finals, all tracks compete with each other directly. Given the logistical challenge this presents for UVa-Wise, they will hold their track across all themes, sending one overall winner to the E-cup finals.

Special thanks to Third Security LLC and Vonage and for their generous sponsorship of the UVa Entrepreneurship Cup.
