The Scipreneur Challenge, in its inaugural year in Knoxville, offers university students and postdoctoral fellows hands-on experience in commercialization and entrepreneurship.

The participating teams, comprising of undergraduates, research scientists, engineers, business students, clinicians and mentors then compete to win prizes, judged by business leaders and investors for a cash prize.
