UCLA ITA Student Entrepreneur Venture Competition: 

Final Pitch Event & Networking Event

In our continuing pursuit to promote entrepreneurship across the UCLA campus, the UCLA VC Fund and UCLA Engineering Institute for Technology Advancement, in coordination with the Easton Leadership Technology Program and the UCLA Anderson School of Management were proud to host the 2015-2016 Student Entrepreneur Venture Competition (SEVC) on May 17th at Korn Convocation Hall.

This competition is all about steering interdisciplinary bridges to innovation, which is why it prioritizes teams that have formed businesses where at least one member comes from the Samueli School of Engineering and one from the Anderson School of Management.

The 5 featured teams in the Final Pitch & ITA Showcase were:

Ariento (1st place)

Dimention (2nd place)

PetSnap (3rd place)
