In this fast-paced competition, early-stage entrepreneurs in the EdTech, FinTech, Internet of Things, health, and travel and leisure spaces will pitch their startups before a world-class audience of tech influencers, financiers, and thought leaders during the Milken Institute Global Conference. More than 3,500 business leaders and influencers from more than 60 countries attend the Global Conference, representing finance, health, medicine, education, energy, technology, media, entertainment, philanthropy, and government.  The Global Conference also draws more than 200 journalists, including representatives from the leading business-media outlets.


GC Entrepreneurs contestants will compete for a trophy and gain exposure to potential funders, post-competition mentorship, and access to the whole conference (a $12,500 value).  Contestants will cover their own travel costs.  High-profile judges will provide evaluation and guidance with an eye toward the start-ups’ growth potential, business strategy, and execution, as well as the entrepreneurs’ onstage performance.  The judges will share business insights to begin the session and offer their critiques after each presentation.  The audience will also join in and vote on each pitch.  To see some of our past competitions and entrepreneurs, please check out our website
