An exciting seed capital opportunity for UWM student entrepreneurs!

Grow your start-up or early stage business venture. You’ve not only got a business idea, but you’ve developed a solid business plan to back it up and are ready to launch.  The Scheinfeld Awards encourage student entrepreneurship, helping launch new Wisconsin ventures and take new ideas to market.

Through the James D. Scheinfeld Entrepreneurial Awards Competition, you have the opportunity to convince a panel of venture capitalists, business executives, and educators that your business plan is not only viable, but worth funding.

Each spring semester, up to three awards in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 are made to promising ventures.
