The Virginia Tech Ninth Annual Global Entrepreneur Challenge, August 16-25, 2018, offers elite students teams and university representatives from all over the world a chance to collaborate, form partnerships, and build their global networks.  All student participants will experience Washington, D.C., through tours and sightseeing trips to museums and monuments, as well as a week-long celebration of entrepreneurship hosted in Blacksburg, Virginia, USA.

Elite student teams will present their business concepts for a $30,000 grand prize as they compete in the Global Entrepreneur Challenge. Faculty and staff delegates charged with building institutional bridges to other universities around the globe gather together for university-to-university networking opportunities and brainstorming sessions to explore future collaboration and partnership. The annual Global E Challenge promotes an ongoing cooperative association of regions building social and academic relationships with each other, honoring their mutual best interests.
