Submission Process

  1. Submit your 3-minute video

Imagine you’re launching a social network at your University. Come up with a marketing plan to attract the first 10,000 users to your site. You’re strapped for cash and you only have $500 to spend on marketing, so paid advertising can’t be the sole acquisition method. Be creative! Explain what channels you would use, what your messaging would be, and how you would achieve rapid growth.

Upload a video describing your marketing strategy to your YouTube channel.

  1. Share your video

Put your marketing skills into practice. Get as many people to give your YouTube video a thumbs up before January 1st, 2019. The top 10 most up-voted videos will move on to the final round of The Top Student Entrepreneur Scholarship.

  1. Compete in the finals

We have hand selected the top marketing minds across multiple industries to judge the top 10 finalists. They will evaluate your entry on a set rubric that includes sections on creativity, quality of presentation, financial soundness, and thoroughness of the strategy.

The winner of The Top Student Entrepreneur Scholarship will be named on January 14th. We will directly pay your University $1,000 for your tuition.
