In collaboration with Bruzzy Westheimer, UNT graduate ('65) and longstanding supporter of the university, the Westheimer New Venture Competition will give teams of three UNT Ryan College of Business students the opportunity to present their business ideas in a Shark Tank-like setting.

A five-page proposal must be submitted by midnight on Monday, March 16 for review, and up to five teams will be selected to compete in the final evaluation round. Written summaries will be judged on the basis of quality, originality and potential impact of idea, depth of research and support, and professionalism of writing and presentation.

Finalist presentations will take place on Saturday April 25, 2020.


1st place team = $10,000
2nd place team = $5,000
3rd place team = $1,000

All remaining finalists will receive $100, each.
