Finalists are each given 5 minutes to pitch, with 5 minutes of Q&A from investor judges. At the competition, winners will be selected by a blend of 1) crowd voting, 2) faculty voting, 3) judges panel voting. The judges panel will have a weighted vote in case of a tie.
In addition to winning the $6,000 cash prize, the winner of the College Cup will be eligible for automatic inclusion in the Galant Challenge at UVA. This seed stage funding competition has resulted in $2.5M+ invested since 2012.
The second place winner will receive $3,000, and third place will receive $1,000.
