Fourteen ventures selected as finalists for second annual MSU $50K Venture Competition April 7-8


Fourteen entrepreneurial ventures have been selected as finalists for Montana State University’s second annual $50K Venture Competition, which will take place virtually on April 7–8.

During the competition, which is hosted by MSU’s Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship and its Blackstone LaunchPad & Techstars, the 14 ventures will compete for a share of $50,000 in prize money. Finalists will also gain access to experienced entrepreneurs, mentors and numerous business network resources. In addition, finalists will receive feedback from judges and may capture the attention of investors, future collaborators and community members.

The 14 finalists were selected from among 36 entries submitted by MSU students, faculty, staff and recent alumni.



Occurring every spring (moved to the Fall or 2021), the University of Montana John Ruffatto Business Startup Challenge is open to all students attending a college or university in Montana. From new products and inventions to social entrepreneurship ventures, the challenge invites all ideas for submission.
