Our annual Big Bang! business competition provides a forum for the UC Davis and broader community to collaborate, develop and test business visions and plans. The Big Bang! offers mentorship, team building, education, financing and networking for aspiring entrepreneurs.
Participating in Big Bang! is an educational experience beginning in October and lasting until May. Teams use this period to develop new ideas (e.g., team members from a variety of technical and business disciplines and/or mentors found in faculty, alumni, and other community professionals).
By participating in the Big Bang!, you will learn how to:
- Define your problem and solution
- Develop an elevator pitch
- Define your product or service
- Evaluate the potential market
- Develop a business model
- Create a pitch presentation
- Write a business summary
The competition is generously sponsored by local corporations and the investment community.
