The Rice Business Plan Competition is the world’s richest and largest graduate-level student startup competition.  It is hosted and organized by the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship, which is Rice University’s internationally-recognized initiative devoted to the support of entrepreneurship, and the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business.

In 2018, student startups, Four Growers and FRED, represented Pitt as the University’s first-ever competition participants. 

At the end of March 2020, over 40 teams from around the world will compete for more than $2.9 million in cash and prizes.
