The Acara Challenge competition provides U of Minnesota students the opportunity to pitch their idea for funding.

What’s your big idea? The best time to get started is now, but it will take critical feedback, mentorship, connections and seed funding to get started. The University of Minnesota Acara Challenge is a great opportunity for UMN students to pitch their plan. Outside competitions, fellowships, and awards can also serve as entry points to access a wider audience as well as more serious early stage capital.
