About the Competition:
The $100,000 Lowell Milken Institute-Sandler Prize for New Entrepreneurs is a team business plan competition designed to recognize student innovation and support the real-world launch of promising new business ventures. Offering the largest entrepreneurship competition award of any law school with a total of $100,000 in prizes, the Lowell Milken Institute-Sandler Prize for New Entrepreneurs is open exclusively to UCLA students.
This competition is for teams with a Startup Business that the team has already started to build or intends to build within the next 12 months. A Startup Business is any proposed business or existing business, for profit, not-for profit, or public benefit. The Startup Business must be a new, independent venture in seed or startup stages. Each team must consist of two to six members and include a current UCLA School of Law 3L or LLM in good standing, or a 2018 UCLA School of Law graduate. Finalists are invited to present their venture idea at the public Final Round event where winners are determined by our Final Round judges.
