Encouraging Entrepreneurs

Chancellor Khosla served as the keynote speaker at the 7th annual Elevator Pitch Competition hosted by the UC San Diego Entrepreneur Challenge student organization.  The Chancellor talked about the importance of multi-disciplinary collaboration in solving pressing societal challenges.  After his speech, 10 students had the opportunity to present their two-minute “elevator pitch” ideas to a panel of judges.

The Entrepreneur Challenge student organization fosters community involvement and technological innovation by bringing multi-disciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, and business-minded students together with local area entrepreneurs and professionals.
