3 I. General Competition Information Introduction The $100K Challenge Venture Competition is a premier business, social enterprise and invention competition hosted by the Franz Center for Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation at the University of Portland. Underwritten by generous donors to the University, the competition promotes experiential education about entrepreneurship and new business development by focusing on student created, launched, and managed ventures. Students are provided with expert feedback on their plans and presentations, as well as the opportunity to apply for funding to help launch their ventures if they wish to pursue them. Business Plan Competition The Business Plan Competition is a multiple round competition where student teams will present their plans for new ventures (for profit and social enterprise) to a panel of judges. For Profit Competitors (includes BioMedical Engineering Ventures): The top three places in the for-profit track will be announced at the end of the event, and receive cash awards. The first place team will receive $1,250, second place team $750, and third place team $250. These amounts are to be divided among teammates, as determined by the team. It is not necessary to launch the venture to receive these awards. These awards will be paid within 3 weeks of the competition completion. All participants in the for-profit track will be eligible to apply for an investment of up to $20,000 (half cash and half support services) from the Launch Pad Fund, established by UP donors to support the launch or expansion of student ventures. These Launch Pad Fund Investments are made upon the decision of the investment committee. The investment committee is comprised of three members of the Franz Center Advisory Board. No employees of the University of Portland are allowed to serve on the investment committee. Interested teams will have until August 31, 2018 to submit their application. Once an application is [2]

4 completed, the investment committee will review materials and meet with the applicant before October 31, The investment committee will inform the applicant of the investment decision before December 1, If an investment is made, the VP for Finance for the University of Portland will provide final paperwork before December 31, 2018 and the applicant will have until January 15 to sign and return the paperwork. If selected for investment, teams have up to six months to complete the investment process, and made into a legally organized business entity. Social Enterprise (Non Profit) Competitors: The first place in the social venture track will be announced at the end of the event and receive a cash award of $1,250. It is not necessary to launch the venture to receive this award. The awards will be paid within 3 weeks of the competition completion. The 1 st place winner in the Social Venture track will also be eligible for a $2,500 grant and $2,500 in professional services award to assist in the launch or development of the social venture made by the investment committee. Winning teams will have until December 1, 2018 to apply for this award, which must be made to an eligible 501c.3 organization (or have 501c.3 status pending with the state and/or IRS). Invention Competition The Invention Competition provides students with an opportunity to showcase inventions that have developed for which they may have a design and early stage mockup, pretotype or prototype. It is not necessary to have a business plan to compete in this category. Participants in this category can receive $250 of funding from which to develop their invention prior to the competition. The top 2 teams (or individuals) in this category will go on to represent UP in the Invent OR state-wide competition to take place in October These teams will have up to $1,500 to develop their prototypes during Summer [3]

5 Applicants can compete in both for profit/social enterprise competitions and the invention competitions, as long as the invention has not yet been presented in the competition. Prizes and Reimbursement Opportunities The 100k Challenge Venture Competition believes in supporting the work of all applicants and providing opportunities for reimbursement, as well as awarding success. Cash Prizes All cash prizes will be awarded to the top teams in each track as outlined in the business plan competition section above. Disbursement of the prize will be made to participants from the team, based upon the direction of the team leader. Cash prize awards may be subject to taxation and are the sole responsibility of the entity or person to whom the awards are distributed. Each entity or individual will be required to provide a W-9 before receiving any prizes. All prize payments will be reported on a Form 1099-MISC. Foreign applicants need to contact the competition coordinator at the address below to get exact requirements. All teams are eligible for only one cash prize during the Business Plan Competition. People s Choice Award All spectators are eligible to vote for their favorite competition submission. The team with the most will receive the People s Choice Award and prize. All voters must be in attendance for the duration of the competition to vote. Competitors are not eligible to vote. Votes will be submitted via VoteVox and instructions to do so will be presented day-of. Expense Reimbursement (Up to $500) The $100k Competition offers the opportunity for teams to obtain reimbursement up to $500 of eligible expenses that were incurred in the course of developing and running experiments for all new ventures (the For Profit Fund [4]

6 Form or the Social Enterprise Expense Form). This reimbursement is available only to applicants who have registered for the Competition prior to the deadline. AARP Foundation Prize There is also a special $3,000 cash prize for those ventures (for profit or social venture) that address the needs of low income senior citizens. This special category of the competition is open to teams from any university or college in the state of Oregon. See AARP Foundation Prize below for details. What is the AARP Foundation Prize? In furtherance of its mission, the AARP Foundation may award $3,000 to a team whose for-profit or social venture business plan best addresses one or more of the following needs of low-income seniors (50 or older earning less than $40,000 per year): (1) the need to access adequate and nutritious food, (2) the need to live safely, independently and comfortably in functional and affordable homes, (3) the need to increase and/or maintain income, (4) the need to enjoy the positive health outcomes of strong and sustaining social bonds. The AARP Foundation wants to encourage the submission of business plans that can have significant and sustainable impact on these issues. Review of plans that elect to be considered for this award will be done by a representative of the AARP Foundation or its designate. The award will be made within 60 days of the competition. The AARP Foundation reserves the right to not award the prize if no business plans of a high quality are presented. If your team chooses not to pursue your business idea, your team may still be eligible for the $3,000 prize. The AARP Foundation would then have ownership of your business plan. This award amount is to be divided among teammates, as determined by the team leader. Participants in the AARP Foundation Prize at The University, whose proposals, in the opinion of The Foundation, could help a low-income 50+ to age-in-place, are also eligible for consideration for the national 2017 AARP Foundation Aging-In-Place $50K Challenge award ( the Challenge ). Should such a [5]

7 participant win the Challenge, it will receive a cash prize of $50,000 to implement the proposed solution, and $10,000 will be contributed to The University by The AARP Foundation. More information is available here. Funding Opportunity Launch Pad Investment All participants in the for-profit track will be eligible to apply for an investment of up to $20,000 (half cash and half support services) from the UP Launch Pad Fund, established by UP donors to support the launch or expansion of student ventures, as outlined in the business plan competition section above. All students intending on applying for the UP Launch Pad Fund investment will need to attend the StarveUp s Launch Pad on May 18 th -20 th, 2018, held at the IMMIX Law Group offices as a prerequisite. StarveUP is a local entrepreneurial support organization that has collaborated with us for this event. After successfully completing the StarveUp s Launch Pad event, students can apply for the University of Portland s Launch Pad Investment opportunity. Launch Pad Fund Investments and in-kind services for the $100K Challenge Venture Competition will be disbursed and paid only to a properly organized legal entity that will be launching the venture described in the plan. No Launch Pad Fund Investments will be made directly to any student or team members. Other Important Considerations The spirit of this competition is that current undergraduate or graduate students both originate and lead the startup idea. The $100K Challenge Venture Competition is an educational experience, and teams not working towards this end may be disqualified (e.g. an existing company that recruits students only to become eligible for the competition). The $100K CVC Rules Committee reserves the right to review companies on a case-by-case basis and make eligibility decisions. Teams that are unsure of their eligibility should contact the $100K CVC Coordinator at the address below. Competitors who promote illegal, illicit, unethical, immoral, or other types of activities which may be considered unworthy of association with the $100K Challenge Venture Competition or University of Portland will be disqualified.

Late applications cannot be accepted and deadline extensions cannot be granted for any reason. The $100K CVC staff encourages each team to submit their Full Business Plan and Business Plan Presentation early so that any technical difficulties can be resolved before the deadline hits. Failure to submit by the deadlines noted will disqualify a team from the competition. Confidentiality and Intellectual Property All submitted information is deemed the property of the participating teams and any licensors that it has. All of our judges and staff are working professionals and investors who routinely evaluate business plans and protect the property of [7]

9 others in the process. However, they do not sign any non-disclosure agreements to participate in this competition. Teams are strongly encouraged NOT to provide any specifics or details that are considered intellectual property or the key to intellectual property. Any data or information discussed or divulged in the competition should be considered information that may enter the public realm, and students should not assume any right of confidentiality in any data or information discussed, divulged or presented in the competition. There will be no recourse in judging when a question or issue is not fully addressed because of concerns over confidentiality. In addition, the system we utilize in managing plan submissions has their own confidentiality policies and teams should also review those when agreeing to the use of the system. Conflict of Interest Statement Judges, Launch Pad Investment Committee members, volunteers, or UP faculty members may not have any vested interest, equity stake, or financial stake in any of the finalist companies. Any involvement by the previously listed parties that stand to gain financially or otherwise from the success of any finalist company is strictly prohibited. Any such associations will result in disqualification of the team and/or removal of that individual from his or her associated position with the competition. II. Rules & Guidelines Team Rules All teams must meet the following criteria to qualify for the business plan competition: Teams must be composed of 1-6 student member(s). Teams may not have non-student members.
