2022 UDC Capital Cup Entrepreneurship Competition Winners

The Capital Cup Entrepreneurship Competition will bring the Entrepreneurship competition to every high school in America and to every country in the world, offering smart, innovative young people the opportunity and incentive to create business ideas that can change the world.

Entrepreneurship is a cornerstone of what makes America great. Successful businesses are founded on interdisciplinary, communication, and critical thinking skills, many of which must be gained through experience. While raw knowledge can be obtained in the classroom, it can be difficult for a burgeoning young entrepreneur to experience the process of developing a business plan and executing it. That’s where entrepreneurship competitions can help play a huge role. These competitions give outlets to students who may have a great idea but lack the resources or mentorship for comprehensive follow-through.

Capital Cup- High School Entrepreneurship Competition empowers high school entrepreneurs from around the world to create a culture for entrepreneurship, to promote entrepreneurial education, and to engage in a more peaceful world. Participants are invited to submit their innovative ideas and projects with a societal impact. High school entrepreneurs can present their new venture ideas to an expert panel of entrepreneurs and business leaders, gain valuable feedback, win thousands of dollars in startup funds, and meet prospective mentors and investors!

The UDC Capital Cup Competition is committed to providing experiential learning opportunities for entrepreneurial high school students in Washington DC. In addition, we strive to support and recognize the achievements of entrepreneurs within Washington and throughout the United States. We’re committed to the success of entrepreneurs and believe that they are the cornerstone of a robust economy and nation.

The International Business Entrepreneurship Plan involves the development of a proposal to start a new business venture in an international setting. It may be a new business or a new product/service of an existing business. Any type of business may be used.

Participants in the International Business Entrepreneurship Plan will:

  • apply entrepreneurship knowledge and skills in an international setting
  • prepare an oral proposal for a new business venture
  • present the proposal in a role-playing interview
