Entrepreneurship & Business Incubation

UCR EPIC International Incubation Challenge for Latin American Startups

The UC Riverside Office of Technology Partnerships (OTP) and Entrepreneurship Proof of Concept and Innovation Center (EPIC) launched a competition in November 2022 to support technology-based startup companies from Latin America that want to explore opportunities to commercialize their innovations in the US market.

Six (6) LATAM startups will be selected in February 2023 to receive $100,000 in prizes, with the grand prize winner receiving a cash prize, expert mentoring support, and a trip to Riverside.

Alianza MX is sponsoring an additional USD $30,000 prize for the top-ranked Mexican entry other than a grand prize winner.
