Pitch Party Finals (Hosted By the Entrepreneurial Center)
The Carolina Challenge–UNC’s premiere entrepreneurship competition– engages approximately 500 students at Carolina, representing 145 teams across more than 40 fields of study. Through our annual competitions, we award over $25,000 annually to winning students to help them start to build their ideas into a business or social venture. The Carolina Challenge kicks off each fall with the Pitch Party followed by the Makeathon in early spring. The Carolina Challenge’s competitions and workshops welcome and encourage all UNC students to participate, with no prior experience required.
