The Proving Ground – awarding $52K

The Proving Ground, USC’s signature entrepreneurial competition. This year, we will be awarding $52,000 in three categories. One category, Maxient Innovation, is restricted to only undergraduate students. A second category, Avenir Discovery, category is open to undergraduates, graduates, and alumni who have graduate in the last five years.

The third category is the SCRA Fan Favorite category. Runners-up from the first two categories are placed in that category, the audience decides the winner.

Submissions close on February 28, and the final pitch competition, a Shark Tank like event, is on March 29. The web site has a “Questions?” with all relevant information.

Any questions from faculty or students, please contact Dean Kress.
