Opportunity Quest Competition Overview
The annual Westminster College Opportunity Quest is a business plan competition designed to encourage students to venture into the world of entrepreneurship. The competition is a great opportunity for students who have ever considered starting their own business, or who have a business concept in mind, to validate their ideas and determine if they have a real market opportunity.
$10,000 in Prize Money
The culmination of the competition will give teams an opportunity to pitch their business plans to a panel of judges consisting of entrepreneurs and business leaders. Prize money - $8,000 - will be given to the top three teams!
We are launching a new category dedicated for Social Entrepreneurship with a winning prize of $2,000.
The winning team automatically becomes a semifinalist in the Utah Entrepreneurial Challenge (UEC). The UEC is a statewide competition that awards over $100,000 in cash and in-kind services each year.
Opportunity Quest is open to all Westminster undergraduate and graduate students regardless of their major. Non-students can participate as long as one team member is a current Westminster student. Participation in the competition is free. If you don’t have a business idea, don’t worry; we can pair you with other participants who are looking for dynamic team members.
