The TriNet Challenge is an annual business competition aimed at fostering creativity and supporting new ideas in innovation and technology. The TriNet Challenge provides students, staff, and faculty with opportunities to submit their best business ideas for awards up to $6,000 in initial funding.
The TriNet Challenge is a UC San Diego partnership of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Rady School of Management, and the von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement at the Jacobs School of Engineering.
The goal of the TriNet Challenge, sponsored by the Scripps Foundation, is to promote innovation and commercialization within the three schools and provide entrepreneurially minded scientists and engineers with the opportunity to develop and advance their technology's commercialization plan while providing an avenue for potential funding. The challenge provides networking opportunities, bringing together scientists and engineers with entrepreneurs and personalized mentoring by experienced businesspersons.
The 2014 TriNet Challenge competition is now open. Deadline for Executive Summaries is January 24, 2014. Learn more: TriNet Challenge 2014
