Dragons at the University is a competition where students from the Master's programme in Entrepreneurship get the chance to pitch their business ideas for venture capitalists – the "Dragons”.
The project started at Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship in 2010 as a part of the Master's programme in Entrepreneurship, with inspiration from the television show Dragons' Den.
The competition ends with a grand finale with a jury of business angels, who evaluates and awards presentations and entrepreneurial ideas to a large audience.
At the final the jury is looking at the trustworthiness, the potential of the project and rhetorical qualities of the pitch and will have a small sum of money to spend on their favourites after each presentation. An overall winner and the best presentation are selected to get prizes. For the Audience prize, we welcome you to join and to vote for your favourite team.
