Welcome the spirit of entrepreneurship at the Inaugural Fowler Business Concept Challenge (FBCC), an early-stage business concept challenge at the University of San Diego!

The FBCC is brought to you by the newly launched Entrepreneurship and Innovation Catalyzer at the University of San Diego School of Business. Our vision is to build lifelong entrepreneurs with the values, knowledge, and attitudes that enable them to create world-changing innovations. At the Catalyzer, we are “Building Entrepreneurs.”™

This event will bring together students, community leaders, entrepreneurs, and investors together for an inspiring evening that may just ignite an entrepreneurial passion in you. 

You will enjoy great food, music, and learn directly from our student entrepreneurs. After receiving 90 venture submissions, we've narrowed them down to 16 semi-finalists that will pitch live on stage on November 15, 2019.

Join us to see how the 'who's who' of San Diego's entrepreneurship community will distribute $45,000 in scholarship money to students pitching their business ideas on the big stage. 

Please bring your friends and family. We looking forward to welcoming everybody
