Trinity University will be hosting the final round of its annual Stumberg Venture Competition on October 18, 2022 at 3:45pm-8:00pm during San Antonio Startup Week. The event will be hosted at Trinity University in the Center for the Sciences and Innovation.
“The six teams competing in these Finals won the Seed Round competition where each team won $5,000 for their venture, summer stipend support, mentorship, and access to networking, summer housing, and educational workshops through the Trinity’s Accelerator as well as in the Geekdom Incubator. They’ve been working non-stop on their ventures!” said Carmen Aramanda, Assistant Director at the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Trinity University.
Over the course of the competition, $50,000 is awarded to student start-ups. Students participating in the finals for this competition will be eligible to win a $25,000 grand prize for their startup company. The event not only provides funding for student start-ups, but also provides opportunities for mentorship and connection to the greater San Antonio startup community. Winners will be announced at this event, and attendees will have the opportunity to meet the students competing during the reception that immediately follows. It will be a great way to meet up and coming talent in the community.
“We love that the startup community makes the Stumberg Competition a must-see event on their busy calendars. Join us in person if you can, it will also be available through Trinity’s YouTube channel online!” said Aramanda.
The Stumberg Venture Competition honors the legacy of the late San Antonio businessman and civic leader Louis H. Stumberg.
A food industry pioneer, in 1946 he co-founded Patio Mexican Foods, a company that took frozen Tex-Mex foods nationwide. Mr. Stumberg gave generously of his time and treasure and was instrumental in helping build San Antonio’s business and civic life.
