The Dempsey Startup Competition Dempsey Startup , organized by the Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship, provides a real-world experience for student entrepreneurs, promoting student ideas and new venture creation to the entrepreneurial community. Participating in the Dempsey Startup gives students practice in the dynamics of venture creation by developing an idea, putting together a founding team, writing a business plan, and presenting to investors. In fact, many ideas that started as a class project turned into a start-up company through the competition process! The Dempsey Startup Competition is open to undergrads and grad students at accredited colleges and universities across the Cascadia Corridor — Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia, as well as Alaska. The Dempsey Startup Competition will be held entirely online. Read about the virtual competition.
