Now in its 23rd year, the Tulane Business Model Competition has become one of the Freeman School’s signature events and a national showcase for collegiate entrepreneurs and innovative startups. Hosted by the Freeman School’s Albert Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, the competition awards cash prizes totalling $125,000 to student-led startups from across the nation that demonstrate high potential and a market-tested ability to adapt to customer needs.

The 2024 competition will take March 11-12 in the Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex on Tulane’s Uptown Campus. The Lepage Center is currently seeking volunteers to serve as reading-round judges for the competition. These judges are responsible for reviewing applications and selecting the six ventures that will face off in the competition’s semifinal round on March 11.
