Ramp Up Competition
Ramp Up is open to all faculties at U of M and is an event in partnership with the Technology Transfer Office, North Forge Technology Exchange and the Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship. This event is 1.5 days long and begins with a pitch session where students pitch their idea to the crowd. Following this, students create teams based on the ideas and spend the next day working on idea validation, market research, financials, assessing the competitive landscape and more. This event promotes ideas to collide, grow and change while also providing students the opportunity to pitch their venture at the end of the weekend for a chance to win money and feedback from industry judges.
